2 thoughts on “Recycling More Vs. Recycling Right

  1. It was with great interest I listened to this video. The perspective I received is that it is business as usual, no disruptors in the industry, and single stream is an oxymoron.
    Singles stream does not increase recycling it actually decreases recycling. Single stream with its limited items is built for recycling companies not the consumer and the reason is because the recyclers built their systems so that they are unable to expand or accept broad recycables.
    Using the term “contamination” limits recycling and is an industry problem not a consumer problem.
    Example, people now shred papers to save their data from theft, but you say it “contaminates” why? Because the industry was built to where it is unable to accept these types of items.
    Tell the truth to the public and stop protecting your vested interest. Increase recycling by increasing collection of recycables this industry is only collecting the easy recycables.
    Ms Pulley has it right it is not about tonnage but what is collected?

  2. I think Lawrence should do all consumers a favor and open a paper recycling facility in his basement, where he can he figure out how to make a living separating shredded paper from the other fiber types. Once he’s done that, then he can go find a paper mill that wants his shredded material (hopefully he’ll post that).
