Greengairs is a village in North Lanarkshire, Scotland. Lying 3 miles (5 km) southeast of Cumbernauld and 3 miles (5 km) north east of Airdrie, the village consists mainly of local authority housing. Its nineteenth-century origins are in coal mining and quarrying. Greengairs power station opened in 1996, and is powered by methane produced by biodegrading materials from a large landfill site developed since 1990 in former open cast workings situated to the south of the village.[1]
