Finding A Hole Big Enough For The Landfill Tax

by | 19th, March 2010

WHILE trying to find out whether Landfill Tax (a completely insane tax) is EU-imposed (which appears to be the case, but it’s not 100% conclusive) I stumbled across this nugget on the BBC:

Under new EU legislation the UK will have to ensure that less than a third of its waste is sent for burial in landfill sites… The figure at present is about 80%. Even then, there will still be large amounts of waste which can neither be recycled nor sent to landfills.

The Environment Agency says space for landfills in south-east England could run out within seven years.

Guess when that article first appeared?

Clue – It’s 2002.
