SIR, - The situation regarding the disposal of "green" waste is apparently even worse than that described in Alan Bunting's letter (Herts Advertiser, June 5). He asks about the destination of "cardboard-laced compostable waste". The answer from St Albans District Council is amazing.
I sought the council's guidance on the best means of disposing of diseased hedge trimmings which a garden centre had advised should not be composted. After checking, the council official told me to put the material in the green bin with all the other organic waste, since "it is burnt at such a high temperature".
I asked if she really meant that all the contents of our green bins were incinerated and she confirmed that to be the case. I still have difficulty believing it. If true, the implications are profound and deeply disturbing.
