Scrap the duty of care notice for refuse collection

Comment 6th July 2010

I run a 1 man business. I pay £160 per year for Merton Council to collect one bag of rubbish per week. On top of this I have to pay them £90 for a duty of care notice to tell Merton Council that I have disposed of my rubbish with an approved contractor, i.e. Merton Council.

Why does this matter?

It is a complete waste of time and money. It has made no difference to the amount of fly tipping. Illegally dumped rubbish that I see appears to originate from households, exempt from these regulations. Abolishing this stupid regulation could return money to hard pressed small businesses.
