They also called on the situation to be closely monitored - but the city council are confident surrounding areas won’t be adversely affected.
A spokesman said: “Waste operations at the Polmadie Residual Waste Treatment Facility will be undertaken in a fully-enclosed environment.
“This will have fast-action roller shutter doors and a negative air extraction/biofilter system in operation so as to mitigate against any noise and odour impacts. Environmental controls will be put in place at the facility with the approved planning application including a health assessment which supplemented the Environmental Impact Assessment.”
The spokesperson also said the facility would have no bearing on the future of the Cathkin Braes landfill site, saying: “We have lodged a planning application to extend the operational life of the site to August 2016 with two years of restoration thereafter.
“There is only one condition within our Site Operating Permit (the permit issued by SEPA) which relates to closure date and we have already amended this with SEPA to August 2016, which they have confirmed as acceptable.”
