Those Recycling Schemes Again

Posted by rantingkraut on August 22, 2007

The BBC reports that a majority of respondents to a survey supports ‘pay as you throw’ rubbish charging schemes. If there is a compensating decrease in Council Tax –as suggested in the survey—then this might not be such a bad idea. Landfill space is limited after all.

On a more general note, we should never forget that you can get public support for just about anything if you design your survey accordingly. We should never forget this, because there are some highly entertaining examples to prove the point:

– Penn and Teller famously mustered public support for a ban on water!

– … and then there is this wonderful petition to end women’s suffrage.
