    Recycling - Does it "work"?

    The Mrs lived in Perth with her parents 20 years ago and even back then they had their act together with regards to collecting recyclable materials. Question is this. Does it worK? I heard stories in the UK that it was not economically viable to recycle plastic bottles because the weight versus volume argument meant that it was more damaging to the environment to transport them than the benefits from doing so. Also, stories of (UK) warehouses full of newspapers that nobody wants to buy / recycle. Given that Oz is so much bigger in land mass terms than the UK, how successful are these programmes in stopping land fill? I know that 80-90% of the content of glass (bottles) is recycled glass so the economics obviously work there.

    Hi, All over the Uk, the councils have had a big scheme to get people recycling (about time I say) & most of us have been provided now with 3 different bins: Paper, plastics, card etc Food Waste Non-Recycables Do they have this or similair scheme in Australia? Kelly :smile:
