Welcome to the
Cleanzine - the original Cleaning & Hygiene industry e-news
Read by industry professionals in 132 countries worldwide!
In my leader last week I argued that we must continue with fortnightly (rather than revert to weekly) bin collections in the UK as I believe that unless we do something to reduce the amount of waste we send to landfill, there won't be anywhere to put it!
John argued (privately) that even with only three of them at home now, sometimes at the end of the fortnight their bin's full, even though they recycle as much as possible. He advocates weekly collections.
The press here has been full of stories on the issue over the past week and it's clear that people feel very strongly about it. What do you think?
Our waste - and what to do with it - is a global problem and as Cleanzine has more than 80,000 readers in 148 countries, if at least one person from each country emails me with their views on how best (and how often) to deal with our waste, I should have sufficient to kick off a really good forum. Please do get in touch.
What John and I both do agree on is the bad idea of the EU taxing road freight in the midst of a recession (see story below) - with member states having no obligation to reinvest the tax revenues in making road transport greener!
It's just another tax then.
