Recycling IMO is a way of controlling the people and just an experiment to see how far we can be controlled. I'm not suggesting we shouldn't recycle, we need to live in a sustainable world, but what started out as good intentions as resulted in us having to separate cardboard, paper, tins, glass and food waste.
My local authority have just started collecting plastics so I now have to separate this. The amount of time this takes is surprising, but unless we do, they refuse to take it away. Which means we are left with piles of recyclable materials that we can't throw away for landfill in fear of being fined.
This has resulted in fly tipping across the city and the outlying countryside at a cost of £thousands to clear up.

Here, the wood goes into the landfill. I think they should use the wood to heat the landfill buildings myself. That will save them money. They could have a few guys, even prisoners, seperating the wood from the contractor trash. They could recycle roofing also. Some of the Tires are recycled, I do not know exactly what the do with them though.
You are right though, recycling is not that much more expensive. It also can create extra jobs.

ok ppl if you get rip off and somebody call it recycling it really doesn't mean that the real thing is not necessary
