About GGL #9

This GGL is designed to offer an easy solution to globalizing methods of waste disposal for easy recycling.

Every 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!

"Organic 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 coloured segments.

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 read the solar energy source GGL. But vote here first!
