David Cameron says that we should encourage a “Green Consumer Revolution” by rewarding recycling.

His Shadow Secretary of State for the Environment, Food and Rural Affairs, Nick Herbert, says a scheme where the public are paid to recycle is “impressive” and that,

“We need to think far more creatively about how to reward consumers for doing the right thing.”

But Tory-run Dartford is introducing an annual £30 charge for anyone who wants to recycle their garden waste.

This is an example of how the Tories are still true blue rather than green.
