Environment minister Dan Norris announced his support for turning England into a ‘zero waste nation' and confirmed that a consultation on landfill bans is set to be launched in the next few weeks. Mr Norris said that while there was talk about resource waste management "resource waste reduction or waste obliteration would be a better name and that is where we need to set our sights really. We need to take vision of a zero waste nation and make it a reality."Giving an overview of current government working, Mr Norris also drew attention to an impending consultation on proposed landfill bans for certain materials, which has become a keen focus for government in recent months .He said: "Landfill Tax will continue to rise and we are still looking at whether to ban certain materials, such as aluminium, food, glass, plastics, textiles, wood and paper, from landfill”.
