Waste firms write to ministers over landfill tax changes


Why do 'Anonymous' people keep stating that waste / skip companies who have shredded their 'waste streams' have been the guilty parties & have 'got what was coming to them'??.....This is nonsense, people such as myself who invested best part of £400K on a shredder did not purchase them so we could tip shredded waste as inert fines!!..the purpose of a shredder is to process / shred / minimize the waste so to reduce the volume of it and reduce primarily transport costs, the secondary benefit of shredding the waste is so the material will pass through a recycling system / picking line more easier. I should know a bit about shredding for my organization was the first company in the UK to shred 'C&D' & domestic refuse waste on landfill sites & we were processing up to 600 Ton per day on one site alone, & I can assure all parties / readers of this the reason we researched & eventually carried out the shredding operation for a major UK landfill operator was so to reduce the volume of material entering & being compacted into each cubic metre of space within the landfill cells, thus prolonging the working life of the sites & maximising profits for the landfill summarize shredded waste is still waste!!....not fines or Inert soils!!!
