Last Friday we ran an article about material illegally dumped by a Ballina waste collection company in September last year, for which it was recently  fined.

Included was a comment by Lock the Gate spokesperson Boudicca Cerese regarding CSG drilling waste, allegedly emanating from Metgasco’s Glenugie site, being included in dumped material.

Ms Cerese’s comment followed an article that made the claim being published by APN Media earlier in the week.

APN Media subsequently retracted the article after Metgasco pointed out that their drilling operations at Glenugie did not begin until January this year.

Based on this information Echonetdaily accepts that the material could not have emanated from Metgasco’s Glenugie test site. Accordingly we have removed the article from our website.
