Chipped Bins Key To Pay-As-You-Dump - Green Taxation Ensues

Here in the United Kingdom, a nice idea has slowly been introduced by stealth. Some very clever local councils have been dishing out "Wheelie Bins" to residents in their locale. Not just any old mere wheelie-bin. Oh no - these bins are smart. Fitted with RFID microchips, the lorries which come to collect the refuge are capable of weighing the bins to within 500 grams, and identifying the householder by the RFID code.
Although the legal infrastructure is buy real levitra not yet in place to charge householders as they throw refuse, the Local Government Association is poised to make proposals later this year.
By moving to how much is cialis measures of "green taxation", it is hoped that the populace will be encouraged to recycle and best price levitra online be responsible denizens. The Liberal Democrats are the only UK political party that is being proactive and vocal about green taxation - a risky strategy for winning the hearts and minds of voters, but potentially of immense benefit to the environment. 
Similar schemes are up and running in Germany, where residents can pay up to 18p per kilo for unrecycled waste.

chipped bins
written by Damian, October 18, 2006
I have just received a flyer through my door about these chipped bins. It is from my local council and states that 'The electronic chip only contains your address, it will not weigh, record or video the order cialis contents of your bin and we will not use this information to impose any fines or charges'. This is clearly a lie.
I think the scheme is a total waste of money. 1 bin is just try! levitra mexico fine and purchase viagra from us it would be allot cheaper to employ people that can’t get jobs or that think it ok to live off benefits.
This country is disgraceful.
