Polmadie never generated anything other than lots of smoke! Glasgow had 3 incinerators at one time with no benefit from them, at Polmadie, Dawsholm and in its later days Govan. Nowadays most of the rubbish is going to landfill, Glasgow is way behind in terms of the percentage of refuse which is recycled, and unless they get the finger out the council will be getting hit with big fines in the next few years.

Thanks for the welcome Dugald. I have been a long time lurker and finally found a thread I could reply to that I knew something about!
