7 “Even if we made incineration safe we would never make it sensible.

8 It simply does not make sense to spend so much money destroying resources we should be sharing with the future.” (PC)

9 The modern incinerator is attempting to perfect a bad idea At the industrial level our task in the 21st Century is not to find better ways to destroy discarded materials At the industrial level our task in the 21st Century is not to find better ways to destroy discarded materials But to stop making packaging and products that have to be destroyed! But to stop making packaging and products that have to be destroyed! And at the personal level to search for a lifestyle beyond consumerism And at the personal level to search for a lifestyle beyond consumerism

10 The Waste problem will not be solved with better technology But with But with Better organization Better organization Better education Better education and better industrial design and better industrial design

21 The importance of Composting 1) Returns nutrients to the soil 2) Increases soil’s retention of water 3) Retains carbon (vs. Global warming) 4) Makes it easier for cities to handle the recyclables (jobs and businesses!) 5) But to use compost in agriculture you MUST have it clean – which means you MUST have DOOR-TO-DOOR collection.

22 Organic Fraction heirarchy 1) Food to humans (in time marketing, Prof. Andrea Segre, Facolta di Agraria, U. Bologna) 2) Food to animals (bones, meat etc) 3) Backyard composting 4) Community composting (e.g. Zurich, Switzerland) 5) Co-composting with local farmers 6) Centralized composting facility.
