Be warned, Nanny is about to launch a "bin tax" by stealth.
A clause in the Climate Change Act means that all councils are free to adopt charges of up to £100, without MPs voting on the issue first.
There's democracy for you!
This week is the deadline for councils bidding to run the first pay as you throw pilot schemes.
The Department for Environment, Food and Rural Affairs confirmed that powers in the clause will allow any pilot scheme to be implemented across every council in England by ministerial order.
A 'bin chip tax' would see households receive a bill based on the weight of the contents of their bin.
A 'weekly collection tax' would mean households wanting to receive weekly rubbish collection paying an extra charge.
A 'bin bag tax' would see families charged extra for special bin bags for non-recyclable waste.
The 'bin size tax', would be based on the size of the bin.
Nanny has found another way to screw us!
