Our re­cy­cling sys­tem was just a fake

RE: RE­CY­CLING WOES

The Hamilton Spectator - - Comment -

I’d like to ex­press my be­wil­dered sur­prise when I learned that our “mag­nif­i­cent” re­cy­cling pro­gram is a mere pack­ag­ing sys­tem to sell our sorted trash to other coun­tries, such as China. All these years I have been un­der the false im­pres­sion that we have a com­plete re­cy­cling op­er­a­tions fa­cil­ity that truly trans­forms plas­tic into new raw ma­te­ri­als. What a dis­ap­point­ment!

I sug­gest that we seek our Nordic friends’ help in build­ing a real re­cy­cling fa­cil­ity that truly and ef­fi­ciently re­cy­cles plas­tic waste and not merely pack­ages them to ship else­where.

May Dar­wiche, Hamil­ton
