Pay-As-You-Throw

Source here

From January English councils will be able to bid for pilot schemes to incentivise people for recycling more and deter them from throwing stuff away.

Previous pay-as-you-throw pilots were abandoned, but the survey showed 79% of women and 70% of men saying they should be rewarded financially if they create less waste and recycle more.


That can be translated as "people will be punished financially if they create more waste and recycle less".

I will hopefully get the definitive answer as to whether Bristol plans to implement this tomrrow.

The law of unintended consequences demands that we all start dumping our rubbish outside our MPs houses.

People will simply burn their rubbish or dump it in the street if they are going to be charged for it's collection again. What do we pat our council tax for.
