Recycling all waste must be the prefered solution to the horrendous pollution mankind is imposing on the natural environment. Some materials (glass, plastic and basic paper products) can be directly re-used as cost-efficient feedstock for their relevant industries. Other waste products can be reduced to their constituent materials and then either recycled, burnt to produce useful energy, or composted to return to the natural environment. Massive Investment in the necessary infrastructures to enable total recycling must come from all consumers via deposit schemes, compulsory retail industry tariffs and local council taxation. The benefits resulting from this critical investment will save the environment, create jobs and enable the recovery of the already massive waste resources littering every corner of our beautiful planet.
