Recycle / Re-Turn


Looks like waste collection is going up because the waste companies are losing out when they used to sell on the plastic and metal cans..

Is this double or triple taxation now?
Private waste companies increasing their charges has nothing to with taxation.
And the “tax” you pay on the bottle when you purchase is retuned to you.
Jez you really aren’t the brightest 🤣
 
Haven't seen one of these machines yet
Surprised to read that. I've seen loads of them. They're the machines outside supermarkets that there's regularly a crowd of disgruntled looking people with shopping bags queuing in front of.


3M units a day at 15c per unit and they admit there's still a lot more than 10% not returned.

3M x 0.1 x 0.15 = 45,000 Euro per day, every day. That's nice profit if you can get it. And by way of soft-soap the recycle company announce they will donate some of their profit to charity.

Unsurprising to read that it'll result in higher charges from the refuse collection companies - that's what was predicted by some beforehand.

It's just another Green Tax

Yeah, but it looks like they were really doing something.

Ah come off it.
The hit to private operators was flagged at the public consultation stage.
They ploughed on and now everyone is looking at increased refuse charges on top of the price increases in supermarkets this scheme has already triggered.

It was an unnecessary measure in a country almost completely operating private refuse collection.
Bottom line every household is going to be feeling the pinch for this ill concieved and unwanted scheme.

They'll be pounding the doorsteps soon enough and any green showing their face should be grilled on this.

Speaking of grilling them - probably the next thing the Greens will think of outlawing will be barbeques - they're environmentally unfriendly you know. :rolleyes:

Come off what? Where is the double or triple taxation? Look I get it, you don't like the scheme or ever gave it a chance but it's doing it's job as proposed. Your opinion of the scheme is never going to change so this is a pointless discussion.

Private waste companies were happy to coin it and take all the re-cycling cash themselves of course.

Of course it is not a "tax" but a charge that gets returned to you 100% the next time that you are back at the shops.

The best bit is that it as a scheme is running really well and annoying the perma-angry cranks.

They need little excuse to increase charges either, they been at it for years. Handy out for them to blame this scheme, this time.
