Of all the terrible things happening in this world, it would be easy to forgive the view that the slow-motion disaster of our waste policy was one of the least important. However, in the grown up world, there are connections between different policies, not least in terms of the expenditure implications. And where – as is the case – the massive cost of this disaster is draining wealth from the productive economy and adding to the burden of taxation, that has all sorts of implications for expenditure elsewhere.

Much of what was classed as 'surplus to requirement' now commands the title ' waste'.

Prior to this directive, when road maintenance was complete, local council highways employees would approach landowners to dispose of surplus tarmac and road stone in farm / field gateways. No more. Such material now attracts reams of paperwork and must be disposed of as waste - at vast cost to the taxpayer and no benefit to anyone at all.

Looking back to the era before these EU waste directives, I remember less flytipping, cleaner cities and efficient rubbish collection.
What on earth has been achieved here?
