Make treasure from tip trash
IN reference to Graham Badrock’s letter (August 8), we have seen it everywhere in the great recycling plan of today’s world.
Supermarkets call for plastic bags to be placed in a recycling bin at their premises only for them to be placed in their rubbish bin weekly and, of course, councils like to say they are recycling but would rather get rid of the problem by sending it elsewhere.
If councils were fair dinkum, every council tip would have a recycling shop to sell on to ratepayers anything that could or was needed to be sold for use or re-use and not sent to be burnt, destroyed or buried in the ground.
This in turn would raise money for the council’s coffers.
Just look how much money the local opportunity shops make in a year.
We are, after all, humans who think one man’s waste is another man’s treasure.
But this approach really would lead to recycling.
