Shipley, West Yorkshire, United Kingdom, 2008/05/27 - The new landfill tax rates for the UK are causing costs for UK businesses to increase, Slingsby have a wide range of recycling products to help businesses reduce the amount of waste they send to landfill.
Slingsby, leading suppliers of industrial and commercial equipment are highlighting the importance of waste recycling for businesses. The current landfill tax rates increased by 33% to £32.00 per tonne in April of this year and the government intends to increase these by £8.00 per tonne each year so by the 2010/2011 financial year, a level of £48.00 a tonne will be reached - a 100% increase over 3 years. Organisations cannot afford to keep sending waste to landfill and need to implement recycling and waste saving initiatives as soon as possible in order to keep their costs down.
Slingsby have a wide range of recycling products to aid companies to encourage staff and customers to recycle their cans, plastic and glass items alongside the more usual paper and cardboard. Slingsby can supply labelling for bins, recycling stations which segregate the different types of waste, recycling bins, can crushing bins and lockable, secure waste bins for disposal of confidential documents. Their twice yearly catalogue contains over 35,000 products for the workplace and the Environmental and Waste section contains all an organisation needs to set up a comprehensive recycling scheme.
The Landfill Directive (1999/31/EC) which was adopted by the European Union in 1999, is beginning to drastically change the way the UK handles waste. The directive was brought into force in the UK on June 15 2002 as the Landfill (England and Wales) Regulations 2002, and since then it has been introduced in stages to give UK industry time to adapt. The aim is to incentivise producers, consumers, and disposers to reduce, reuse, and recycle waste and divert from landfill through tax or trading.
