I work for a company that is notoriously tight when it comes to spending cash, which is not always great, but you can understand it from a business point of view.
I have been on at them for a while about the amount of Paper and Card they go through and how they should re-cycle instead of throwing it away. However to get recycling at your work place you have to pay for special collections (please correct me if I am wrong).
So I decided that if they bought a big plastic bin, I would take it to the local tip once a week and put it in the recycling bin there.
done this for a couple of weeks, then last night I got collared by one of the workers and they asked if it was office waste, I replied it was, but only cardboard and paper and I wanted to recycle it.
He then duly told me I wasnt allowed and I had to go on the weigh bridge for commercial waste and to pay for it. Now I completely understand lorries turning up being charged, but one normal sized black bin full of paper and card, why do I have to pay?
All you hear is "recycle, recycle, recycle" but it seems as though this is another "green tax" on business?
