MP brokers skip crisis talks at Parliament 


If you separate material from waste and then put it in a landfill, how can that be recycling? If recovered material is actually recycled then you don't pay landfill tax. we all know that the industry has been on a feeding frenzy of producing inert fines (which have a signifcant amount of active waste in it) and engineering material from general waste to avoid tax. What part of this is recycling? How can we claim to have signifcantly reduced landfilling of active waste yet significantly increased the amount of inert and engineering material to landfills. Why do we suddenly need more inert and more engineering materila when there is less waste going to landfill. This is a classic case of someone having been given an inch but taken the mile so HMRC has had no alternative. Firms that genuinely recycle don't send their recyclates to landfill and they will survive.
