Recycling Nationally
« on: August 04, 2018, 11:07:38 AM »
So, the truth is out.
Two thirds of the plastic we recycle goes to landfill!
This is sickening and completely unnecessary.
The mismanagement of this crucial issue for our planet is staggering.

The main issue is that no standardisation of recycling was ever enforced. There are more than 300 different schemes running, with no two the same, it seems.  The government knew well in advance about the recycling needs, so ought to have implemented a nationwide, standardised system.  Leaving it to local councils was always going to be a disaster.  Mind you, leaving anything to councils is a disaster.
