House Clearance Newcastle Upon Tyne Reduce, Reuse, Recycle
The Government has released its consultation paper on the National Waste Strategy, entitled Less Waste: More Value, which calls for substantial increases in recycling and energy recovery from house clearance waste. Other ‘commitments’ include:
• increased public involvement in reuse and recycling of household waste, possibly charging for waste disposal by weight.
• the need for ‘challenging’ but realistic targets.
• a strong emphasis on waste minimisation.
• the need to change the perception of the waste hierarchy.
• more creative use of economic incentives, such as landfill tax revenues funding recycling.
• increased public involvement in the decision making process.
The traditionally approved reduce, reuse, recycle strategy seems to be have become more of a guide than a rule-book, with the ‘Proximity Principle’ likely to have an increasing influence over national policy (this could be a problem for those who rely on free trade for recyclables). Other possible changes could include recycled content targets to boost recyclate markets. Although, energy from house clearance waste as an option was perhaps over-stressed, it was good to see the Government is committed to increasing recycling.
It is now crucial that the recycling industry & the house clearance companies in Newcastle & the UK has its say: you must ensure that your interests are represented at the highest levels. Undoubtedly, the trade associations are examining the consultation document and preparing their responses, but it is vital that you either tell them or the government directly what you think.
We must ensure that this new strategy does not simply become a licence to print money for the waste industry (charging for household waste collection by weight?), but does actually help recycling? We here at house clearance Newcastle have been pushing this exact strategy for years.
