More EU rubbish.....

Thanks to Tim Worstall for picking up on the latest stupid proposal from our masters in Brussels -

"Today the Commission adopted proposals to turn Europe into a more circular economy and boost recycling in the Member States. Achieving the new waste targets would create 580 000 new jobs compared to today's performance, while making Europe more competitive and reducing demand for costly scarce resources. The proposals also mean lower environmental impacts and reduced greenhouse gas emissions. The plans ask Europeans to recycle 70 % of municipal waste and 80 % of packaging waste by 2030, and ban burying recyclable waste in landfill as of 2025."

But all our carefully-segregated recyclables get buried along with all our other rubbish anyway, because EU recycling rules only apply to the collection of rubbish, not to its disposal. Still, the Greens will be happy with all those extra wheelie bins soon to block our driveways for no good reason at all. Not so happy are third worlders living next door to those rising mountains of western rubbish which councils export for burial to avoid paying EU landfill tax.
