Quotes

"We had throwaway economics in the past, but that disposable society simply isn't sustainable in the twenty-first century. Less than half of all the stuff we throw away each year is recycled and turned back into something useful, despite prices for raw materials rising across the world. Global food prices have roughly doubled since the beginning of the century, metal prices have trebled, and energy prices quadrupled. These trends look likely to continue as emerging economies expand and the world population grows to 9 billion by 2050."
"If local residents or businesses do not support, or do not understand, the collection method which a local authority has put inin place, then the quantity of material put out for recycling will be adversely affected, and the material is more likely to be put in the wrong bin, potentially affecting the quality."
"The Carbon Trust has been working on this with Zero Waste Scotland, the High Speed Sustainable Manufacturing Institute, and corporate clients to make sure that the UK can reap the economic and environmental benefits of being more resource efficient.”"
"When properly considered, the GIB report could actually confirm that we already have more incineration capacity (existing and under construction) than we would have genuinely residual, combustible waste available to burn."
