Fears of fridge pile-up repeat.

Birmingham Chamber of Commerce has called on Trade and Industry Secretary Patricia Hewitt to act now to stop a repeat of the 'fridge mountain' affair.

It is concerned at the looming Waste Electrical and Electronic Equipment Directive due to become law over the next two years.

The Chamber's policy department has written to Mrs Hewitt saying the Government should develop standards and suitable timescales for a more sustainable waste management system before implementing the directive.

It introduces the mandatory collection, reuse and recycling of electrical products' waste.
