Correspondence form Dixons Group plc to
the Permanent Secretary, Department for Environment, Food and
Rural Affairs, 22 January 2002
As I have not had an acknowledgement from you
to my letter of 17 December, I wondered if you had not received
it, so I enclose a copy herewith.
Doubtless you will have seen the enclosed article
in last Sunday's Sunday Telegraph and the subsequent news reports
on television. We pointed out to you and to your officials that
this fly-tipping was likely to be a development which would follow
our suspension of collection of old fridges.
As I said in my letter, we and the rest of the
industry would be only too happy to resume collection if there
was somewhere we could take them. I remain convinced that it is
in the best interests of all parties to come to such a conclusion
and I would urge that we do so before the situation gets completely
out of hand.
