Stop the HMRC's proposals to raise the level of tax for trommel fines up from £2.50/t to £72/t. The consequences if this goes ahead are devastating, both environmentally and economically. Waste management companies will not be able to afford the cost of tipping the waste resulting in job losses and closure. The existing waste that cannot be tipped legally, may well be disposed of illegally. We demand the HMRC take in to account the effect of such a sharp rise in taxation.
If the Government want to set back the recycling industry by 30 years and see stockpiles of waste in every corner of the country then they should carry on. Or they could just punish the people who exploited the loopholes and make them pay back their ill gotten gains.
£72 per tonne is an unworkable increase, recycling stations will have no alternative but to increase their running costs to the customer who just wont pay it !! BIG PROBLEMS....
