Back in Liverpool we have Bulky Bob's which deals with free bulky item removal from the home. They make the council money by upcycling and renovatio I think. Big purple van for the city's council colours so really recognisable. Reduces fly-tipping and creates jobs.
That and any waste put into a waste incineration scheme and energy production, linked to the Universities for research would be amazing. Hopefully all run to enough of a profit to use the excess money for local services improvement.
