Bright Blue responds to the UK Government’s decision to remove the ability of local authorities to charge households for the disposal of DIY waste at waste disposal sites.

Commenting, Rebecca Foster, Energy and Environment Research:

“Fly-tipping blights communities, is costly to clear, and poses a risk to public health and the environment. So the decision to end any fees on households for disposing of DIY waste will help reduce fly-tipping incidents.”

Bright Blue recently proposed that, after ascertaining whether it is economically viable, the UK Government should remove the ability of local authorities to charge for the disposal of building or domestic waste at waste disposal sites in our 2020 report Global Green Giant?
