[GreenYes] RE: CNNMoney column on zero waste and Wal-Mart

Interesting -- our studies for my area have found that recycling is more economical than landfilling. Perhaps it is one of the benefits of mandatory recycling -- there are economies of scale.

Getting to zero waste will take time. Big industries, ranging from landfill owners to the makers of plastic packages, like things the way they are. Trucking garbage to dumps is often the cheapest way to get rid of it, at least for now. Even the Grass Roots Recycling Network says: "In profitability, landfill is at the top of the scale, while recycling remains at the bottom."
