[GreenYes] Re: Zero Waste helps stop Climate Change


Too bad that federal tax policies provide much larger subsidies to both burning and landfilling waste than to recycling.

Burning and landfilling also have much more favorable access to tax exempt bonds than do recycling facilities. Go figure.

Reduction of Greenhouse Gases in California Through Waste Prevention and Recycling
by Scott Smithline
California Progress Report - Oakland,CA,USA

Ton for ton, recycling reduces more pollution, saves more energy and reduces GHG emissions more than any other solid waste management option. Californians currently throw away millions of tons of recyclable materials every year. According to the California Integrated Waste Management Board, over 60 percent of the "garbage" in California landfills can be composted or recycled. Increasing recycling should be California's priority strategy for reducing global warming effects associated with solid waste management....
