Further to our “Bedding In?” Questionnaire – it has become apparent from feedback that there are a number of skip operators incurring difficulty with disposal of trommel fines. In general terms there have been three issues identified;
- Landfill operators refusing to accept trommel fines;
- Landfill operators reporting failed LOI results when mechanical operators have passed LOI (below 15%) on samples they have had tested themselves;
- Disproportionate gate fees.
To take this further we would appreciate if all members can inform us of their local landfill operator name and if they are permitting disposal? If yes, how much are they charging at the gate? This will help to establish if there are geographical discrepancies or difficulties with particular landfill operators. Then we can either speak to landfill operators direct on our members behalf or engage with the landfill operators trade representative ESA. Failing that we can report direct to HMRC on the issues that are impacting business’.
Don’t forget that if you are struggling now then come April 2016 when the LOI threshold is reduced to 10% it is highly likely that it will only make matters worse! So we need to act NOW – in order to help you we need you to talk to us so please do get in touch.
PLEASE NOTE THAT ALL INFORMATION PROVIDED WILL BE KEPT STRICTLY CONFIDENTIAL AND NOT SHARED WITH ANY THIRD PARTY UNLESS YOUR GIVE US YOUR EXPRESS CONSENT TO DO SO
We look forward to hearing from you soon.
