Perverse taxation.


Recommended Posts

Seems we are wasting huge amounts of food, together with excess packaging etc. :roll: However, the Green Lobby are calling for "anerobic" recycling units, from which such waste can be used to provide energy. :roll: When the tax was recently increased, Gordon announced that it would be revenue neutral, and be re-cycled to provide funding for new waste disposal initiatives - alas another unkept promise. :roll:

As I understand it most of the tax goes to WREN who use the money to fund a variety of community projects, in 2006 these were Warrington's:


Walton Lea Garden Room . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . .?36,000

Warrington - Cinnamon Brow Community Farm Club . .?26,000

Warrington - Walton Hall Gardens Access Bridge . . . . . .?90,000


So not many recycling projects there then. :wink:
