In 1997 Ron Davies, the Secretary of State for Wales in the incoming Labour government repaid to the disaster fund the £150,000 that it had been induced to contribute towards the cost of tip removal. No allowance was made for inflation or the interest that would have been earned over the intervening period, which would have been £1.5 million in 1997. The payment was made in part after Iain McLean’s examination of the papers released by the government. In February 2007 the Welsh Government announced a donation of £1.5 million to the Aberfan Memorial Charity and £500,000 to the Aberfan Education Charity, which represented an inflation-adjusted amount of the money taken. The money to the memorial charity was used in the upkeep of the memorials to the disaster.

At the time of its planning, the Merthyr Tydfil borough engineer thought that despite the position, it would be unlikely to avalanche. Following some ground movements in the tip in the early 1940s, a drainage channel was dug in early 1944. In November that year part of the tip slid 1,600 feet down the mountain to stop approximately 500 feet above the village.
Found them whilst searching for a skip that allows more than 2 weeks of hire. Their rate for an 8-yard skip was the cheapest I could find and delivery was made as planned. The skip was prematurely collected due to some technical error, however, I was promptly helped by Chris and another skip was delivered as soon as possible at no extra cost to me. I have now ordered another one from them as more work was needed on the property. To date, I can’t seem to find any website as good as theirs, that is user-friendly and can give a competitive quote online without the need for making a phone call.

The first spoil from the coal mine was deposited on the valley’s lower slopes, east of the canal, but during the 1910s the first tip was started on the western slopes, above the canal line and the village. By 1966 there were seven spoil heaps, comprising approximately 2.6 million cu yd (2.0 million m3) of waste. Tips 4 and 5 were conical mounds at the apex of the slope, although Tip 4 was misshapen from an earlier slip; the remaining five were lower down; all were directly above the village. About 111 feet high, it contained 297,000 cubic yards of spoil, which included 30,000 cubic yards of tailings—waste from the chemical extraction of coal, fine particles of coal and ash which took on properties similar to quicksand when wet.
