Joint Oireachtas Committee on Communications, Climate Action and Environment
Scrutiny of the Waste Reduction Bill 2017
I do. I am very interested in what Mr. Clancy said in his statement. If I understood correctly he said that 30% of green bin waste is contaminated. Does that mean that 30% of the content in our green bins is the wrong content? I would be interested to know from Mr. Hogg if there is then a cost for managing that. What is his understanding of the implications of the Chinese decision to refuse to take anything except highly segregated, high quality material? What are the immediate implications of that decision, which was signalled eight months ago and is now in operation? What immediate effect is that having on his operations?
