Do you support a rubbish tax?
I spotted this item on BBC news today:
"Councils should be given powers to charge households for getting rid of non-recyclable rubbish, a think tank has urged the government.
The Institute for Public Policy Research said a “pay as you throw” system was the only way to improve the UK’s poor recycling record. "
Is it a good idea to tax people on the weight of rubbish they dont recycle? Will this encourage recycling, or fly-tipping? Is it a good environmental policy, or just a stealth tax?
