Earl Ferrers is the government Minister responsible for the regulation of the recycling industry. He is undoubtedly an able politician, and yet is he even vaguely qualified to judge the future of one of this country’s longest established and environmentally necessary industries (The House Clearance Industry)? At a recent Recycling exhibition , representatives from the UK House Clearance Group asked the Minister to explain the reasoning behind the placing of used copper, brass and other everyday metals in the category of controlled waste.

After all as they pointed out, most houses have stainless steel and copper fittings in their kitchen and are not considered harmful environments, hazardous to human health. Items were strategically placed on the BSMA stand to illustrate this point, including: a scrap stainless steel sink, copper piping and even a pair of ball cocks, one of which the Minister can be seen clutching. After the question was posed, many people waited eagerly for the Minister’s explanation of the reasoning behind his department’s decision.

Unfortunately, they were disappointed, and in my case, shocked to hear the Minister confess his ignorance of the House Clearance industry, with the proviso: “I’m sure there’s a very good reason.” It’s a great pity he didn’t know it, and indeed, it raises the question in my mind: exactly who is making the decisions in the Department of the Environment, if not the Minister? Anyway, let’s not forget that ignorance is no defence in law, as businesses struggling to cope with huge amounts of paperwork concerning Duty of Care and Special Waste Regulations know all too well. Red tape is costing small businesses in this country 2% of their turnover. I would definitely be interested in discovering the true cost of red tape to the recycling industry: suggestions and calculations are welcome.
