An interesting view on re-cycling and something that I agree with. One has to consider the whole cost value chain, just like I talked about in terms of food miles here. Add up all the costs!!!. So when people talk about recycling, remember somebody has to pay, it will be the (past, current or future) shareholder, taxpayer etc. So in this case, it is at the expense of quality time that the government is hitting recycling targets.
Read and wonder!
All this to be taken with a grain of piquant salt!!!
