As a result of the spectacular successes surrounding trials for BAA on the opening of Heathrow's Terminal 5, several of the country's Council Council authorities have now signed up for a trial period of new refuse disposal services being offered by the Airports Authority.
Rick Backhander, chair of the Association of Middlesex County Councils said:
"We had observed carefully the manner with which BAA handled customers' luggage in Terminal 5 at Heathrow, and frankly, were delighted to see their consistency at losing it.
"We decided that if they could guarantee a similar consistency for us with Council Stealth Tax Payers refuse, we could find a way of disposing of tons of domestic refuse without having to resort to landfill measures.
"My refuse managers have signed up for a trial 3-month period where 12 lorry-loads of domestic refuse a day will be delivered to BAA baggage handlers at Terminal 5, and if they keep to their promise of losing the lot, we plan to extend this service to other parts of the country.
"We can only say that we are highly delighted, if not completely ecstatic to have been able to find a way of disposing of rubbish in such an environmentally friendly fashion."
