Bins they are a'changin

Recommended Posts

It does not matter that much as most of the paper produced is taken from sustainable tree sources that are grown specifically for paper.

But that is just about reduced energy consumption which gives a false picture. What also needs to be taken into account is the energy used in transportation and the pollution that causes. The cost of neutralising the effects caused by using caustic alkaline chemicals and the main problem.. that this can only be done a limited amount of times before it gets burnt anyway. Despite the fact that some recycling companies also get EU funds for recycling, at each stage the cost rises as profits are made. The first cost is it needs collecting, the second is it needs sorting, the third is it needs transporting to a central collection and then it costs to transports it to the paper processing plant. That is also similar to what happens to the other recycled waste.

 

Having a local incinerator that burns the paper should make it much more, efficient financially and energy wise.

Yes. To transport Sheffield's waste paper by road all the way to (I think) Northampton, in lorries, does not seem all that ecological.

Yeah it must be really tricky for you to put stuff in different bins...it's not like they're asking you to go down to the transfer station and sort it all out there...

Clearly its about profit, it always is, anyone who thinks it isnt is naive but in this case its also good for the planet.

What about people in terraces? We currently have four households' worth of bins cluttering up the alley between the four houses and an extra four big bins is just impossible!
