Sunday and more FYI…..
I like many Americans recycle……but many of us know what happens to all that stuff that people put out to help the planet?
The below is a paper written in the UK…but it will give everyone an idea of what is done with all that solid waste…..
The secretive way in which plastic recycling is handled in the UK carries the potential for the next big scandal. While the government’s statutory guidance is supposed to clarify who is responsible, our research suggests that what happens to plastics we believe to be recycled in the UK is in reality quite obscure.
Each council in the UK contracts different companies for the disposal and recycling of household waste, so the rules for residents in different areas vary. But you probably separate recyclables before filling your recycling bin and expect that waste (except when it’s black) to be recycled.
Meanwhile, manufacturers and retailers have pledged to reduce single-use plastics by redesigning their products and using more recycled materials, as well as making different materials easier to separate. There’s no legal obligation for companies in the UK to separate multiple types of recyclable waste when it’s discarded, but many do it anyway.
Hopefully this article was read…it is informative and should be an eye opener……that is if one gives a crap about the pollution.
