Higher taxes for non-recycling households

Higher taxes for non-recycling households

Fiscal shake-up aimed at encouraging green policies at home

UK households that recycle waste energy and water will be taxed less than
those that do not adopt such practices, according to plans put forward by a
major environmental think tank today.

Households that use disposable batteries, single-use cameras, garden
sprinklers and traditional incandescent light bulbs will be charged more, a
report by the Green Alliance said.

The report also called for council tax and stamp duty reductions for
households that installed energy efficiency measures such as cavity wall and
loft insulation and energy efficient lightbulbs, The Guardian
reported.
