Those bins with those magic yellow lids,
throw rubbish in & call it recyclables,
sure beats paying to landfill the same stuff.
Tell Lil we dont buy her rubbish & stop calling it recyclables, its rubbish.
or is it simply a waste of time? A con job?What are your recycling habits like?
I’ll be one to put my hand up and say I’m pretty bad, I go through a 50 pack of sandwich bags a week while meal prepping my lunch and dinners, and probably a roll or two of paper towel. I do try my best to seperate recyclables and general waste when cooking and the like, however I’m also not going to take a bin out if the other one isn’t full yet. Also notorious for still buying Woolies and Coles ‘non plastic’ plastic bags rather than bringing one of my own non plastic bags.
Over to you BigFooty!
As a 3rd world country that we are compared to either Singapore or Japan, see our failed handling of recycling, we can continue what we are doing & landfilling plastics but we need to stop calling yellow lidded bins in the households, stop calling them recycling bins, its rubbish says China, says Indonesia.Burning anything coal gas rubbish (methane from rubbish which we do) produces carbon emissions.
Here is some food for thought:I think I am okay- my general rubbish is pretty low and I try my best not to waste food. (altho with fruit and veggies thats sometimes unavoidable)
Putting snacks in plastic containers and leaving them at work, eg. nuts, biscuits, etc- unless they're sealed properly is a good idea.
I use glad wrap and brown paper bags tho occasionally. Esp the time i chucked an apple in my bag just as it was and then idk but it tasted like ******* deodorant somehow, or some kind of perfume. Fruit in a bag at all times since.
I always use green bags at Coles.
You no doubt make some good points but when it's laid out like a "These six life hacks will make you rich!" it makes it extremely painful to read.Here is some food for thought:
..... everyone puts their hands up and says they’re a recycler.
The trucks that run around to pick up the recyclables at kerbside, they say they’re the recyclers.
The MRFs say they’re the recyclers,
the traders say they’re the recyclers,
even the manufacturers say they’re recyclers.
The true recyclers are the people who purchase recycled products.
The emphasis has all been in the wrong area.
The traders are just that, traders. The MRFs are logistics. The trucking companies are logistics.
You do get washed out in the green. There’s a lot of greenwashing who the actual recyclers are.
In 1992, Mark Yates founded Replas, which makes outdoor products including bollards, decking and furniture, and recycles up to 4,000 tonnes of plastic a year. Yates tells Brent Balinski what to make of the current discussion we’re having around recycling, and about a recent project making...www.aumanufacturing.com.au
Edumecational & all, they missed dills that put rubbish in their yellow lidded bins & the Councils that have been asleep for the past 2 years as household recycling went to hell in a hand basket.
Its no good only reading it, happy to take the criticism on board, its only action that really counts.You no doubt make some good points but when it's laid out like a "These six life hacks will make you rich!" it makes it extremely painful to read.
Energy from waste will provide base load (dispatchible) power, & very little emissions due to our population.Burning anything coal gas rubbish (methane from rubbish which we do) produces carbon emissions.
