True blue not green Tories in Calderdale

The Tories say that they will,

“We will introduce a new approach to waste management, one which minimises waste and promotes recycling.”

But Tories in Calderdale decided to remove the council’s  recycling contract from a local social enterprise who gave jobs to disadvantaged young people in favour of a multi-national company.  The social enterprise used the money earned from the recycling to help disadvantaged people into employment.

Although the multi-national originally agreed to work with the local social enterprise, according to its chief executive, “things started to change”, shortly after the multi-national took over the contract.

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