Environmental charges have gone up yet again. YES i hear you cry so what we must save the planet.....well this is words each successive government keeps spouting but the truth is they strangle the small companies trying to make that difference.
For a number of years now I would like to expand my sole trader company and make that change that would be a start to recycling up to 80% of all waste removed from household or small building sites.
What has happened? Despite the PR bandwagon that says it is doing everything possible to help everybody do better in the green stakes it is now shut down the avenues to recycle plasterboard through new EU regulations. It has stopped recycling of wood other than clean wood to cut carbon emissions but has come up with no alternative to recycling the other 60% now discarded - ultimately now to go to landfill...ummm something wrong here.
Tyres still a major issue as fly tipping continues. With all these so called clever polliticians not one of them can come up with an answer to solve an ever growing mountain of tyres. This is onlt the tip of the ice berg so to speak as this applies to the already increasing mountain of fridges and freezers.
Small businesses like mine find it almost impossible to expand as not only legislation strangling our efforts but the disposal doorways are also closed.
This can only lead down the path of unrest and more small bussinesses going to the wall.
Banks are bussinesses but offer no help except to charge for every single item calling it transparency as they rob small bussinesses of any life line. If we are not careful we will return to open fires because the electric and any other resources will have gone.
