Rhondda Cynon Taf Council has dumped roughly 2400 tons of waste on the site of the Glynhafod Reservoirs in Cwmaman.
The waste is said to originate from the £50 million plus new school at Aberdare.
Contractors working for RCTC have re surfaced the road and have altered some watercourses to gain access to the point where they have tipped the waste.
Having been shown the site myself with the help of a local resident the site has been left in a dangerous manner, there are many steel reinforcing bars left protruding out of the ground what are a potential killer if a child or adult was to fall on one.
You have to ask the question why RCTC used the site in the first place as their own site at Bryn Pica which is an integrated waste management facility providing a variety of waste recycling and disposal services to residents and businesses of Rhondda Cynon Taf.
A U1 exemption has been registered by RCTC that allows the deposit of inert material on the site at Glynhaford.
A film of the site has been posted on You Tube and can be seen on the link below
The question is why are RCTC using Glynhafod as a dumping ground when they already had a facility with capability at Llwydcoed.
