In parliament there are reports that there has been a falling out between the coalition ministers over which Whitehall department is going to be in charge of rubbish collection and recycling policy. According to some politicians, the responsibility for waste collection and recycling within the Government is a complete and utter ‘shambles’ and is in desperate need for reform.
This news is not encouraging and if they cannot decide who is going to make the decisions when it comes to waste management, recycling and rubbish collection, then how are companies and local authorities expected to run at a grass roots level?
Rubbish collection and waste disposal management
Managing waste and the rubbish collection at the best of times can be very challenging indeed, with most local authorities hiring waste management companies to deal with the householder and business waste collections on their behalf. These waste management companies know all there is to know about waste collection and its disposal to ensure that the waste does not pose any health threats to the public.
In order for the removal and disposal of waste to run effectively and efficiently, there needs to be a suitable amount of legislation in place.
