coffee cups left off list of ‘worst’ rubbish by government despite millions trashed every day
Environment Minister Andrea lydsoms is in hot water after removing the new anti-take-out coffee cup Garbage \"task force \". The quarrel may cover up the plan, which will also be announced tomorrow, doubling the fine for littering to £ 50. Millions of disposable cups issued each day are excluded from the list of \"worst garbage\" targeted by the government-backed \"expert group. Instead, the organization will be responsible for developing ways to cut the packaging of plastic bottles, cigarette butts and fast food and bringing forward ideas such as eco-environmental protection Encourage re-charginguse. Last night, a spokesman insisted that coffee cups had become the subject of industry recycling plans and that the government did not want to repeat the work. But the Liberal Democrats and the Labor Party see this as a \"missed opportunity \". Mary Krieger, Labor chairman of the Joint Environment Committee of the House of Commons, said: \"We know coffee cups are part of our street garbage problem and there needs to be a comprehensive study of efforts to address these issues. \"We can\'t solve this problem by relying solely on industry and coffee shops. Tim Farron, head of Lib Dem, said: \"This garbage plan is simply garbage. \"The government has said a few things, but it\'s good not to solve the problem of coffee cups. Ministers who think this will work should be recycled. \"Last fall, the Liberal Democratic Party called for a 5 p fee for coffee cups. The proposal also suggests that if someone throws garbage out of the car, the driver will be punished as much as £ 75. Criminals sentenced by the community must also help Parliament clear the flight Dumping garbage, as first disclosed yesterday. Parliament will be asked to waive fees charged at local dumps for families carrying DIY waste. The Commission will also be asked to \"better distribute\" their bins so that it is easier for people to discard the garbage. MS lydsom said last night: \"garbage is something that affects all of us-polluting our villages, hurting our wildlife, polluting our oceans, destroying our towns, leave a bad impression on our country. \"Our garbage disposal strategy will solve this problem. By building an anti-social behavior Garbage culture makes it easier for people to dispose of garbage and run into danger in their pockets. \"Only a small fraction of the 8 million cardboard coffee cups served each day are considered recycled-because a plastic lining was designed to make the cup airtight. Experts warn that this means it may take 30 years for the Cup to break down.
