America Finally Admits Recycling Doesn’t Work

As Discover magazine pointed out a decade ago, recycling is tricky business. A 2010 Columbia University study found that just 16.5 percent of the plastic collected by the New York Department of Sanitation was “recyclable.”

“This results in nearly half of the plastics collected being landfilled,” researchers concluded.

About Kenneth T.

My blog, My way Welcome to a little piece of my life. Here you will find things concerning my everyday experiences and or my thoughts on everyday happenings. For instance you may find thoughts of my Farmstead, which is as my wife calls it, our Accidental Farming life. Perhaps on a whim, I might just jump on a soap box about what's going on with my crazy family (the immediate one, that is).~You don't need to put a penny in the coin slot for any commentary there~ You may find, new additions to what I call "Hobby-time". Ahh yes, my hobby... I make pinback buttons (some call them badges). Sorry for the shameful plug ;-) *** And then there is the outside the box or "Offtrack" thinking, part of me. Which can be anything else from aliens to the zoology of the Loch Ness monster, but will probably be more mundane as health concerns, for instance, to vaccinate or not. Is the Earth Flat or is it Hollow? Is there a dome? Is any of it real? Do you really want to know? Police brutality and the continuing corruption of established government, Big Business, Big Oil, Big Brother. Can we survive? Should we survive? The coming montrary collapse. There is so much going on, more then we see outside our windows.

    It’s not the garbage we produce. It’s how we manage it. And as of now we’re not doing a very good job.

  3. We have been conditioned for many years to do landfill and when you actually think about it, it is so toxic to the Earth. I like the reduce and reuse ideas in fact if we had paper bags instead of plastic for those who have a garden could compost it and that is reuse and recycle. There are so many youngster who are developing amazing ideas to use waste I think they should be encouraged. The Earth, Our Mother is suffering greatly from the toxic waste and many people do not have any idea about this. Very interesting post.


  4. The three R’s – reduce, reuse, recycle. Trouble is so much emphasis is placed on recycle, mankind ignores reduce and reuse. Recycle ought to be a last resort rather than the first option. Sigh.
