Helminthdale, like all English councils, has a government-imposed duty to increase the amount of recycling of waste.
Helminthdale Council charges itself commercial rates for bulk disposal of paper for recycling.
Helminthdale Council cannot afford to pay itself commercial rates for bulk disposal of paper for recycling.
Some paper waste is picked up at the Town Hall for recycling, at standard waste disposal rates. This service is not available to the Library Service, Planning, Social Services or Environmental Health, all of whom have offices not ten yards away from the Town Hall. The barrier being the transport costs.
Helminthdale is likely to fail its recycling targets and will probably be fined for its failure.
The fine for failing to meet recycling targets is ten times the commercial cost of its collection.
