NS tire protest

A protest was held yesterday over the burning of tires at the Canada LaFarge cement plant in Brookfield.

The group gathered in Truro over the plan to burn the rubber tires.  Lydia Sorflaten of Citizens Against Burning of Tires is concerned the burning could have adverse effects on people’s health and the environment.

Others are also concerned that burning the tires will leave fewer for C&D recycling which turns them into material used in asphalt.
