This petition was submitted during the 2010–2015 Conservative – Liberal Democrat coalition government

Petition Ban the burning of confidential data. Make recycling a requirement.

More details

There is no law in the UK regarding the burning of confidential data. As such many businesses feel they have a right to burn it regardless of the toxic smoke that is prejudicial to health and as such should not be permitted also I feel this is not a suitable or safe way to handle our confidential details.
There are excellent ways to recycle and many company's across the UK offer this service at a small charge which is then recycled into toilet and tissue paper.
As such I would like a law introduced to forbid the burning of all confidential data and get the country even more green. Reduce the carbon footprint now!
