Trash Talking: The Recycling Hoax

Recycling specific material is supposed to be good for the planet, save money and make us feel better. The truth is recycling is all a big “SCAM”.

ALL the recyclables collected over all these many years has had little impact on the planet and in SOME cases the trash sorted isn’t even being recycled. In an effort to save the company money it’s going straight into your local landfill anyway.

Of course EVERYONE wants to save the planet. More importantly everyone wants to THINK they can save the planet. The sad truth is … It Can’t Be Done.

You need only to watch the 2004 episode of Penn & Teller’s Bullshit! on Showtime. They explain that it actually takes more energy to recycle a plastic bottle than to make a new one.

The good news is that recycling aluminum cans DOES work. It actually cost less to make a can from old dead cans than from scratch. Collecting them and turning them into a center DOES pay.

Products made from recycled material sounds “neat and cool” but simply save us NO money or resources to make.

At least all this paper being recycled save trees, Right??
Wrong. Today we grow trees especially for making paper. Almost all of our paper comes from virgin pulp from tree farms. The truth is recycling saves NO TREES.

Who gives a fuck - it saves me money: because I can have a huge-ass recycling (and compost) cart for free I can get away with having the smallest and cheapest garbage cart (which is included into property tax anyway).

The way to expose the scam is to demand profit sharing for recycling participants.

After all, if recycling is so good and efficient, there should be a profit, right? Instead of paying for a recycling "service", participants should BE paid.

Especially considering the free sorting labor that residents and businesses engage in.

Everyone knows that once trash is no longer at one's home,it disappears,never to be seen again.
It rhymes with the industrial complex when it dumps their chemical waste into the water,on the land & into the air, "It's gone!"
Shall I post links to micro plastics in rain & in snow in the Arctic?

Suicide by ignorance.
