The reason, according to Anipac (national plastics industry association), is a 2007 federal government decision to end the recyclers' right to assess how much tax they should pay on waste bought from garbage tip scavengers or pepenadores - who don't pay taxes and do not present the recyclers with an invoice. As a result, since 2008 the recyclers have not been allowed to deduct pepenador payments for waste material from their tax bills.
