Tipping rumble


Share post:

THE STINK over Government’s recently introduced tipping fee for waste haulers is rising again.

In fact, WEEKEND NATION investigations have revealed that since an announced “temporary settlement” arrived at during a meeting on Monday morning, haulers had become so concerned for the future of their trade that the informal grouping had grown from ten to several dozen and was expected to be close to 100 by next week.

The questioning of industry players also revealed that the haulers were gearing up for further protest action as early as next week if “real efforts” are not shown by Government to respond to their concerns.

“Last week we went into the talks with the minister with one frame of mind, but now the gloves are off,” one hauler said. “We have gone through a week in which several haulers have not been able to work because they could not pay for the books up front . . . ministers can make pronouncements, but talk does not make money.”
