Petition Ban 'Green' Waste being dumped on the Countryside

More details

Did you know that councils are paying farmers sums of money each year, to dump 'green' waste on their land?

Farmers in the belief that they are doing the right thing for the community, are being conned, and having their land contaminated with plastic, aluminium, glass and all kinds of other products, containing chemicals and substances, which not only destroys the appearance of the countryside, but also puts at risk the health of wildlife and humans.

Thousands of tonnes of this toxic rubbish, containing syringes, bottles, gloves, toys, glass - some of which will not decay for hundreds of years, to be tipped on the fields each year.

Do your bit today and get this banned. Please sign today.
