Since July, the European Union has started to fine Poland 40,000 euro per day for poor waste management.

When Poland joined the EU in 2004, the country declared that rubbish and waste would be better managed and disposed of, resulting in less trash ending up in landfills across the country.

In 2010, the amount of waste ending up on the rubbish tip was to be reduced by 25 percent, however that number barely reaches 8 percent.

I believe there is going to a bill before parliament before the end of the year, giving local councils the powers to manage waste disposal and decide how its going to be disposed. Apparently they want to avoid a monopoly situation whereby a few big companies corner the market.

Wild.... honey, didn't you set this thread up? But it's true.... I have been assiduously sorting my trash for the part 5 years until the management of the property announced it was all in wane... simply, those who take over our rubbish do not really distinguish between plastic, paper and other. Well.... it will take time, I guess. Sad.....

I am not really sure i want to have nine different coloured wheely bins outside my farm that i will get fined for if i don,t stay at home to take them in after they have been emptied like some countries do...

Like the UK for instance....

What do you actually have on your farm?

Well..there is me , a dog called Rover ( yeah that makes the Poles laugh ) and a family of six cats....thats it folks..

No cows , sheep , pigs , Elephants , buffalo or whatever , although i swear i did see a crocodile in my well one day...but that might have been the vodka....
