New HRC Timings & Wasted time/monies
On the face of it this sounds like a very positive move, especially with the proposed savings. However, no mention of the monies to be spent closing and reopening the various sites. I am also concerned that, after the recent revelations in the media, much of our efforts in trying to improve recycling rates is wasted it would seem. Apparently investigations have revealed that much of our time, money and effort are negated by the sorted waste being passed on to companies for processing, who in turn are exporting it together with non recyclable waste all mixed up. At destination this "contaminated" waste is simply incinerated or sent to land fill. Are we really achieving anything or just passing the problem elsewhere? A reassurance that this is not the case would be nice. The temptation otherwise is to say "I won't bother to sort!"
