Consequences of deficiencies

Costs not fully accounted for

The study underestimated costs and impacts associated with recycling and therefore could not achieve the main objective – determination of what was worth recycling from where

Materials in the kerbside program

The study did not differentiate enough between those materials ‘worth’ recycling and those less so – because it concluded that the total activity was worthwhile

The study failed to conclude that – at least for some if not all materials – there should be no recycling outside major centres – and that some materials are not worth recycling at all

Targets

The study suggests recycling is good and more recycling is better – this contradicts other studies and economic theory which suggests an optimum level should exist for each material – this level may well be zero for some materials – This means that any targets set need to be carefully considered
