Yes and the prices have gone up at the sites we use for tipping. We suffer both ways.

I guess we can expect a huge surge in fly-tipping, then (not that I am suggesting for a moment that the previous posters would even consider such a thing).

 

Well done again, the government- yet another half-a***ed scheme you couldn't be bothered to think through.

Just been reading that skip companies are planning a chaos in london over the Jubilee weekend by leaving hundreds of skips as blockades around major arterial routes. Can't say I blame them and think they have a right to be annoyed, typical Tory taxation crippling small businesses as per usual.

 

Worry slightly about the effect this would have on emergency services in congested areas however so I hope genuine planning comes into effect that will allow emergency services to go about their business as usual without risking lives.

We could see another goverment spectacular U turn on this one like the recent 'pasty tax'!

When I saw this in last nights Star I knew the fly tipping would become a problem. Customers just arn't going to pay this so we'll be leaving rubbish on the job (at the customers request) and then god knows how it will be disposed of.
