Plastic bag 5p charge backed From The Argus

Councillor Anthony Blagg, the cabinet member responsible for waste, says replica watches uk too many people walk away from places such as supermarkets with bags they don’t need.

The Conservative says the Government’s policy, which is planned to kick in by 2015, is about “educating” households.

“You see them blowing about, caught on trees and it’s clearly something we can be much better at. It’s an educational thing and a good idea to introduce,” he said.

Coun Blagg, who is attempting to get council backing for a controversial rubbish burning incinerator at Hartlebury, also appealed to households to not replace plastic bags with heavier carriers.

In the Republic of Ireland charges started in 2002, and for several years afterwards the sale of heavier plas replica watches uk tic bags increased vastly as shoppers looked for alternatives.

He said: “They brought the charges in over there, and because people bought other, heavier plastic bags it soon became counterproductive.

“We’ve got to be aware of that and as long as people are, this is a good idea.”

Deputy Prime Minister Nick Clegg announced the 5p charge during the Liberal Democrat conference earlier this month.

The new legislation will suggest charges be levied on customers at supermarkets and other “large stores”, but the coalition has yet to confirm how large.

Charging consumers is nothing more than placing another type of tax on them. If supermarkets did supply biodegradable carriers then I would be prepared to pay say 0.05 in every 100.00 or part thereof. Let us not forget when with the inception of superstores in the very early days. There were replica watches uk always plenty of cardboard boxes to carry your purchases home. Who was it who brought in that non disposable plastic bag? It was not the purchaser. It was the retailer.

Why should the public when shopping have to pay 5p for a carrier bag?
