'More consistent waste collections could rescue recycling figures'

Comment

its simple work out the cost of household waste collection and treatment, per tonne and charge retailers per tonne of packaging material content in what they sell at that cost plus 20%. Distribute the tax back to local authorities in full but only on the recycled element, so there is a heavy incentive to councils to recycle, plus a very heavy incentive for industry to minimise waste
