Rubbish and the Universal Law
The Minister for the Enviornment increasing substantially the charge for LEGAL waste disposal will lead directly to only one thing IMHO, an exponential increase in ILLEGAL dumping.
The law of Diminishing Returns
Where towns and cities have imposed too much cost and inconvenience on the motorist by way of parking charges, fines, and clamping, they have witnessed a huge migration of business to suburban shopping malls where parking is provided for free.
Already illegal dumping from cars of sacks of rubbish is on the increase. It might be prudent for the Minister to consider that the same Universal Law might apply in the case of disposing of rubbish.
