House Clearance Stirling Government Regulation
There have been two disappointments this week for the Stirling House Clearance industry. Both the British Recycling Federation and the British Waste Association expressed their concern over this Government’s ignorance of the needs of the house clearance industry in Scotland no more so than here in Stirling. On the one hand the Government is channelling large sums of money to such projects as Going for Green or the much heralded environmental task-force, which, let’s face it, have questionable results and will swallow as much money as you can throw at them for as long as you, the tax-payer, can afford it.
Yet on the other hand, the Government will not lower recently introduced taxes which are damaging both British industry and our environment. The publication of the Government consultative document on changes to the Special Waste and Waste Management Licensing regulations can be seen as a slap in the face for average house clearance company. Recycling used house clearance waste can only be seen as beneficial. Other disposal methods, whether fly-tipping them in ditches, sending them to landfill, or burning them, can only be worse for the environment.
So, why tax such an effective and economic house clearance recycling system, yet subsidise inefficient uneconomic forms of recycling? The European Commission is even considering a waste directive which will demand very high recycling rates for most house clearance waste. If we already have an economic waste recycling system the envy of many other nations, why handicap it?
It also seems strange that the waste transfer business association have been remarkably quiet on this issue. With the emphasis & responsibility mainly on the house clearance companies in Stirling, surely they have a vested interest in protecting the recycling system? Could they view a fall in the recycling rate as an excuse to levy a recycling fee on waste produced from house clearance in Stirling? Who can say. As for waste transfer stations being advised to sort their house clearance waste into inert and active categories to offset the cost of the Landfill Tax, surely Government Ministers are mistaken. Is this the first example of Tory ‘spin’ being applied to recycling?
