is designed to offer an easy solution to globalizing methods of
waste disposal for easy recycling.
council, town, city, county, state and country has for some unknown
reason come up with a random cocktail of complicated waste disposal
solutions. Ranging from collections of green boxes full of paper
(but sometimes plastic as well every other Wednesday) - to driving
miles to a bottle bank, queuing up (with engines still running!),
then finally disposing of a boot full of glass.
Ummm... has it not occurred to anyone
sitting in council offices and other thrones of authority around
the world that a single, practical agreement, hammered out in
half an hour, could establish a global code for waste disposal.
For example; six different coloured rubbish bins. Organic waste
(green). Glass (yellow). Paper (white). Metal (grey). Plastic
(blue). Hazardous (for batteries etc.) (red). Complimented of
course by the same code on all domestic and industrial packaging
itself, which would display a coloured label relative to the bin
it should be disposed into. Painfully simple.
This is how it would work:
In your house, you might have rubbish
bins that are divided into six coloured segments... smaller bins
within the main bin. Simply observe the coloured labels on the
wrappers and packaging you wish to dispose of, and place them
in the segment the same colour as the label. Each independent
segment can be lifted out and emptied into one of six, colour
matched (small) dustbins outside. This means that household (and
industrial) waste is separated from source and makes recycling
a lot easier and more cost effective. Colour matching bin liners
would also be available.
Anglo-American note: For the sake
of mid Atlantic English adjustments, garbage, trash, rubbish
and dust (bins) all mean the same thing!
Loose variants of parts of this
idea are in place in some countries. But the point is,
there is no universally recognized waste code as to what garbage
goes where. By adopting such a universal code, bin manufactures
and product manufactureres everywhere would at least provide us
all with a system we can stick to and therefore get used to using
in practical ways. Why not even add the color code to the school
learning curriculum? "The Recycler Table" could
become as common knowledge as the two times table!
is Green, Glass
is Yellow, Paper is White,
Metal is Grey, Plastic
is Blue, Hazard is Red!"
Even garbage bins in your local
mall, stations and all public places would provide the same six
At the moment there are still many
areas around the planet which do not acknowledge any recycling
programs. There are some which may encourage the public to dispose
of their waste with environmental consideration, but inadequate
waste management means that all the rubbish usually ends up in
the same tip. So, there really is an urgent necessity for a global
law of conduct for disposing of rubbish. This means everyone will
share the same responsibility to process their garbage with environmental
consideration. If you want to read more about how recycled plastics
could eventually become part of a free clean energy world then

The GGL proposes a universal garbage
colour code for easy recycling of household and commercial waste.
