Marc Scheimann reports on Council Waste Recycling
Luton & Bedfordshire Green Party hold regular monthly meetings, which I try to attend.
There is always lively interesting discussion.
Last Tuesday evening Marc Scheimann, our 2009 local European Parliament Candidate, reported a study he is carrying out on local authority waste recycling. In what amounts to a scam, it appears that some 35% of Councils send their recycling waste to destinations outside the UK. Marc added that Mid Bedfordshire District Council seem to be in the clear. Although 2% of Mid Beds recycling goes abroad, it is for a specific reason, to known destinations.
