Registration Fees For Composting

EDM number 2492 in 2007-08, proposed by Timothy Farron on 12/11/2008.
Categorised under the topics of Environmental protection, Schools and Waste management.

That this House expresses concern at proposals within the Environmental Permitting Regulations which would charge schools to register for composting; recognises that the proposed £50 charge would serve as a deterrent for schools considering introducing composting; believes it would impact negatively on the environmental education of children in schools and undermine the Government's current efforts to encourage the public to dispose of their waste in an environmentally friendly manner; and urges the Government to reverse its decision to charge a composting permit on anything which is outside the private individual's garden.

This motion has been signed by a total of 26 MPs.
