...I took a look at different zero waste resolutions and some talk about
zero waste diversion from landfills. While I see this as a positive step
I can't see any reflection of the need to prevent waste in that
commitment. You can continuously grow your per capita waste generation
while diverting most of it to recycling programs for useless products.
Can anyone tell me how waste prevention is dealt with in quantitaive goals
in other cities or regions that you know? ie, are there waste reduction
laws besides waste diversion from landfill or incinerators?
