Extracts from an email to LBH on 2/2/2011, which was ignored.

If each household is provided with smaller transparent sacks for residential waste, printed with the address, including flat numbers and black sacks are no longer collected or wheeler bins emptied, the sacks being scanned and if containing recyclables, a fee is charged, there would be an immediate and dramatic increase in recycling.
If the present recycling rate is 35% with 70% participation! it is likely that there would be an increase of at least 35%, with "medium recyclers" ( i e newspapers, boxes and glass bottles) making more effort and some of the remaining 30% opting to do so.

Savings :-
1% = £85k
10%=£850k
20%=£1.7m
30%=£2.55m

Plus charges for residual sacks containing recyclables, at £5-£10 per sack initially,(not too much if it is a mistake, but enough for being more careful in the future)
Plus considerably heavier fines for anonymous sacks, boxes and bags
If unaddressed sacks of any sort are outlawed under the Clean Neighbourhood Act, they could be seen to be substantially profit making rather than greeted with dismay, wherever they are left.
Numbered stickers could be used, with the time and location noted, before removal for investigation

Our waste is a valuable resource in terms of† both the environment and the economy and making the most of it would be a fair means of protecting other services.
Hounslow is well placed to carry it out, with an impressive list of materials collected for recycling and the potential for more.
Children learn very quickly and allowances could be made for the elderly and genuinely confused.

Can anyone find anything wrong with this?
With everything else being scanned , including ourselves, why not the rubbish?
