Recycling as Universal Resource Policy
The universal recycling of all products is an achievable reality if attitude change to accept it but it will take hard, academic research. The Garbage Industry today dominates and determines public attitudes and policies. The insidious notion that recycling should pay for itself through the mere recovery of materials assures the perpetual deferment of progress toward a recycling society. Industrial designers are capable of designing in total recycling of industrial products, independently of bioorganic methods e.g. composting. Chemicals are the most prominent and likely candidates for universal recycling. The five inescapable laws of recycling are: 1) Reuse function, 2) Provide for recycling in advance, 3) Exclude the Garbage Industry totally, 4) Remove all subsidies for dumps and 5) Make sure that recycling is profitable and determine how they may be integrated in support of an organization’s environmental policy
