Powderhall Incinerator, now Waste Transfer Station
- Built 1970
In 1985, when land-fill became more economic that
incineration, the incinerator was converted to a waste transfer station,
compacting rubbish for land-fill.
From 1985, the rubbish was sent to
Kaimes Quarry, S Edinburgh.
Since 1997 it has been sent to Kaimes East Barns near Dunbar, East Lothian.
