'Zeroing In' On Less Commercial Rubbish

Bracknell Forest has announced a consultation into trade waste after discovering that only a third of companies in the area recycle their rubbish.

Over 60% of all material disposed of in landfill sites originates from commercial organisations and concern is high to reduce this environmentally harmful way of dealing with waste, according to figures released to the press.

I asked local blogger Mark Thompson for his view, who has described the arrangements of the office management company responsible for the facilities where he is a manager and director as "far from satisfactory".

He is also rather dismayed about the quality of consultation being run jointly by three local authorities (Reading, Wokingham and Bracknell Forest) and reckons they should 'get on with it'.

Cllr Glenn Goodall has also advertised the move which he says LibDems have been pushing for for some time.

Any company which wishes to have it's say should get it's skates on, as the consultation period closes at the end of this week. Feedback can be provided through the re3 website.
