Villagers stage noisy protest at country's biggest waste exhibition. Frustrated at being targeted for yet another waste dump residents of Greengairs and neighbouring villages today (Wednesday 27 October) took their protest to the country's biggest trade exhibition and conference for companies dealing in waste. Half a dozen whistle-blowing, bin bag wielding, villagers staged a sit down protest and occupation of Eden Waste's corporate stand at today's Wastex event in Edinburgh. Other protests wearing t-shirts with slogans such as 'Eden Waste: don't dump on us', 'Eden Waste: don't dump on Greengairs' handed out leaflets to those attending the exhibition.
