Kettle calling the pot black again!
Really interesting udea.
Why not extend it to all plastics?
Comment on: PRNs hit by reduction in exports to China
All this bellyaching and yet over the past ten to fifteen years the waste industry and its recyclers have done exceedingly well with the farce of sending their dirty waste to the PRC. And the Waste Management Industry (the purveyors in the Municipal sector) have lauded their magnificent recycling rates on the back of throwing these items across the waters to the PRC claiming that they have met their targets when they have not done so at all in effect they have lied. This needs addressing immediately.
Comment on: Sainsbury’s drops food waste campaign
Sorry about this, but Food Waste is not 7 Million tonnes a year in the England and Wales area.
This is nonsense.
And your statement is not correctly edited"£700 per year"?
Get your figures correctly stated please.
The issue is absolutely nothing to do with the issues of China.
There have been many fires recorded in the waste industry and they are no doubt the result of direct actions of arson and wanton intent.
It is always the same that the Waste Industry blames Others when it is its own fault and bad management and failure to live up to its ideals, one of which is the alleged loss of profit. Frankly the issue is, as stated here farcical. The Waste Industry has made £ Billions and Billions over the past years by adopting the notion of dumping its contracted waste in China.
So it is now time that it should correct its actions and its reckless behaviour and not blame fire issues on others.
