Cost-benefit issues that need to be addressed

Benefits need to be adjusted for actual yield – particularly in the case of glass

Pollution impacts need to be weighted for true impact on population

The full impact of collection activity – including new data on the health impacts of diesel particulates and new models for stop-start transport – needs to be assessed

Costs associated with in-home material preparation and time taken need to be included

Packaging / marketing company costs associated with choice of materials and labelling expenses need to be considered – as should the restriction on innovation imposed by the push to make all packaging recyclable

A better estimate of worker health costs is needed

The lack of coincidence between cost and benefit needs to be explained – It is clear that regional centres that do not host manufacturing facilities get little or no benefit for their efforts and expenditure
