Environmental Myths

We are not running out of landfill space

Quarrying for gravel, clay, sand etc in and around cities generates holes at a rate 10 times faster than they can be filled.  There IS a shortage of long term planning

Reduce, Reuse, Recycle – not a rigid rule

RRR often misapplied in waste policy – ‘Reduce’ given as the reason for reducing packaging even though the use of packaging yields environmental benefits

The ‘waste hierarchy’ lacks a scientific basis

There are many cases when ignoring the ‘hierarchy’ gives better outcomes – enforcing the hierarchy leads to higher costs or impacts – ‘Avoid’ translated into avoiding packaging
