  • Uk_waste_industry_backs_eu_level_policies_177_

    A Governmental review of EU powers affecting the UK has revealed general support for waste and environment regulations.

    The cross-department ‘balance of competences’ review looked at how UK industry and other stakeholders viewed the influence of EU legislation.

    It said the waste management profession agreed that EU Landfill Directive and Waste Framework “significantly changed the UK’s approach to waste management, reducing landfill and increasing recycling”.

    The Environmental Services Association told the review the Landfill Directive had led to a “huge reduction” in UK methane emissions from landfill, which are down 65% since 1990, and a “much better” rate of recovery of materials and energy for the UK economy.

    In its response, the Anaerobic Digestion and Biogas Association (ADBA) said EU climate change policies had driven economic growth and jobs by creating a sufficiently large market for low-carbon technologies.

    The Chartered Institution of Wastes Management called for further regulation in some areas and said there should be new EU-wide standards for solid recovered fuel and refuse derived fuels.

    Both the CIWM and the Resource Association said that an additional 50,000 jobs could be created if the UK increased its recycling rate to 70%.

    Some respondents warned against the cost of waste obligations on small to medium sized businesses.

    The review said: “The evidence showed that in some cases respondents believed that EU regulation had not found th...

    HUNTINGTON — West Virginia American Water’s Huntington Treatment Plant carries a high susceptibility ranking for contamination with more potentially significant contaminants upstream than any other water system in the area, but very little is known about those pollutants and their impact on Cabell County’s main water supply, according to a state report published in June 2003.

    The unanswered questions may come as unsettling in light of a Jan. 9 chemical spill, which leaked Crude MCHM from Freedom Industries into the Elk River and subsequently into the water company’s Kanawha Valley intake a mile downstream.

    West Virginia American Water claimed to have zero knowledge of the chemical’s presence at Freedom Industries, but reassures those living in Cabell County that adequate monitoring exists upstream and at Huntington’s water intakes to detect almost anything before it impacts the local water supply, said Sandy Johnson, water quality supervisor at the Huntington Treatment Plant. Her facility also benefits from a catalog of top concerns as cataloged by the Ohio River Valley Water Sanitation Commission (ORSANCO).

    “New chemicals are produced every day, new industry is moving in every day, so you can’t be 100 percent prepared,” she said. “We’ve been on the Ohio River. We know what is there all of the time. We’re testing it. I’m proud of the Ohio River that it has cleaned up over years. Instead of being more polluted, it’s getting cleaner and cleaner. I’m very proud o...

    I have no doubt that we have entered a new dawn in Scotland with the advent of the new Waste Regulations which came into force at the beginning of this year.

    With an ambitious target set by the Scottish Government of 70% recycling and just 5% of waste going to landfill by 2025, the regulations are instrumental in helping us achieve this aim.

    However throughout the process of raising awareness of the regulations I’ve found it encouraging to see a real awakening across Scotland of the financial benefits on offer through managing waste more effectively.

    Indeed, many businesses and organisations now know that it makes absolute financial sense to cut down on waste and recycle wherever possible; staking their claim to some of the estimated £192m savings on offer through businesses and organisations in Scotland becoming more savvy with how they manage their waste.

    Here at Zero Waste Scotland, we have been working tirelessly to ensure that as many businesses and organisations as possible were prepared for the regulations when they came into force on 1 January.

    The requirements are clear: all businesses and public sector organisations in Scotland are legally required to separate key recyclable materials including paper and card, plastic, metals and glass for recycling collection. In addition all food businesses which produce over 50kg of food waste per week must present this for separate collection unless they are located in a rural area.

    Regulations are a legal requirement...

  • Newport CH International Group: Why should we recycle?

    Environment, Environmental Design

    Recycling conserves our valuable natural resources!

    • Recycling helps to conserve our natural resources such as oil, metal and water.
    • For example plastic bottles can be recycled into new plastic bottles and polyester fibres for use in fleece jumpers and car mats. By recycling we reduce the amount of natural resources needed to make products and packaging. Also less mining and extraction occurs, which is beneficial to the natural habitats of wild animals.

    Recycling saves energy!

    • Recycling aluminium saves 95% of the energy required to produce aluminium from raw materials.
    • Recycling just one plastic bottle will save enough energy to power a 60 watt light bulb for 3 hours!

    Recycling protects the environment!

    • Recycling helps to conserve energy, so less greenhouse gases are emitted.
    • Recycling reduces our dependence on landfill. With less materials going to landfill, less harmful emissions like methane gas are released into the earth's atmosphere.
    • Since Repak was established in Ireland in 1997, over 4.4 million tonnes of used packaging has been diverted from landfill, that's enough waste to create a trail of trucks from Dublin to New York!

    Recycling can save you money!

    • By putting more recyclable materials into your recycling bin you reduce the amount of times you have to put your general refuse or black bin out for collection. It is usually more expensive to collect the black bin than the recycling bin, so...

    Benefits of Recycling

    Most of the reasons we recycle are environmental, although some are economic. These include:

    Too Much Garbage

    One of the main reasons for recycling is to reduce the amount of garbage sent to landfills. Landfill usage peaked in the 1980s, when Americans sent almost 150 million tons (136.08 million metric tons) of garbage to landfills each year. Today, we still dump more than 100 million tons (90.719 million metric tons) of trash into landfills annually [source: Hall]. Even though modern sanitary landfills are safer and less of a nuisance than the open dumps of the past, no one likes having a landfill around. In heavily populated areas, landfill space is scarce. Where space is plentiful, filling it with garbage isn't a very good solution to the problem. Today, recycling efforts in the United States divert 32 percent of waste away from landfills. That prevents more than 60 million tons (54.432 million metric tons) of garbage from ending up in landfills every year [source: EPA].

    Pollution from Landfill Leachate

    Landfills cause another problem in addition to taking up lots of space. The assortment of chemicals thrown into landfills, plus the chemicals that result when garbage breaks down and blends into a toxic soup known as leachate, creates huge amounts of pollution. Leachate can drain out of the landfill and contaminate groundwater supplies. Today, impermeable clay caps and plastic sheeting prevent much of this run off, making the landfills much safer...

    We all know recycling is good for the environment, but many don’t realize the ways recycling can positively impact their own community. These days, there are more than just moral incentives for communities to establish recycling options and encourage participation.

    Here are five ways the benefits of recycling can hit close to home:

    Recycling has become a major industry that reaches far beyond your average curbside pickup program. According to the U.S. Bureau of Labor Statistics, by 2010 employment in green goods and services accounted for 3.1 million jobs in the United States. The green job potential grows exponentially the more communities invest in their own recycling efforts.

    It’s easy to associate green jobs with what we see most often, such as curbside collection services, but that’s just the tip of the iceberg. There is a lot to do with recycling that goes on behind the scenes.

    The saying one man’s trash is another man’s treasure couldn’t be truer than in the case of recycling.

    The market value of recycled or recyclable materials offers a great incentive for communities that recycle en mass. These days there are growing opportunities for communities to earn money by selling their recyclables or their already recycled materials. Processors and manufactures often purchase them so that they can make new products for less money than with virgin material.

    Recycling isn’t just saving mat...

    Recycling is the process of collecting and processing materials that would otherwise be thrown away as trash and turning them into new products. Recycling can benefit your community and the environment.

    Benefits of Recycling

    • Reduces the amount of waste sent to landfills and incinerators;
    • Conserves natural resources such as timber, water, and minerals;
    • Prevents pollution by reducing the need to collect new raw materials;
    • Saves energy;
    • Reduces greenhouse gas emissions that contribute to global climate change;
    • Helps sustain the environment for future generations;
    • Helps create new well-paying jobs in the recycling and manufacturing industries in the United States.

    Steps to Recycling Materials

    Recycling includes the three steps below, which create a continuous loop, represented by the familiar recycling symbol.

    There are significant environmental and economic benefits associated with recycling. Recycling helps create jobs, can be more cost effective than trash collection, reduces the need for new landfills, saves energy, supplies valuable raw materials to industry, and adds significantly to the U.S. economy.

    More Jobs, Economic Development, and Tax Revenue

    • Recycling creates new businesses that haul, process, and broker recovered materials, as well as companies that manufacture and distribute products made with these recycled materials.

    • The recycling and reuse industry consists of approximately 56,000 establishments that employ over 1.1 million people, generate an annual payroll of nearly $37 billion, and gross over $236 billion in annual revenues.

    More Energy Security

    • The amount of energy saved differs by material, but almost all recycling processes achieve significant energy savings compared to virgin material production. For example, recycling of aluminum cans saves 95 percent of the energy required to make the same amount of aluminum from virgin sources. For each can recycled, this is enough energy to run a television or computer for three hours.

    • By conservative estimates, recycling was projected to save 605 trillion British Thermal Units (BTUs) in 2005, equal to the energy used in 6 million households annually.

    Less Greenhouse Gas Emissions

    • Current evidence suggests that it is likely that human activities have contributed to accelerated warming of the Ear...
