Household Recycling is
State-Endorsed Slavery

Breitbart London [UK], by James Delingpole

Original Article

Posted By:Attercliffe, 7/5/2014 6:53:54 PM

Recycling is authoritarian, demeaning and an unutterable waste of time, energy and money. No surprise, then, that the European Union is planning to force its vassal states to do much, much more of it. Last week, the European Commission proposed its most draconian waste disposal legislation yet: a plan requiring 70 percent of all municipal waste and 80 percent of packaging waste to be recycled by 2030; a total ban of the landfill of recyclable waste by 2025, aiming "to virtually eliminate landfill" by 2030. As even the Guardian quietly concedes, this is an impossible ambition:

Classic Dpole--a really good piece on the nonsense of householder recycling. Jimmy D has done some sharp research containing wonderful material to use in friendly discussions with your green neighbors.

Our town recycled until last week. The recycling facility had closed down, so everything now goes to the landfill. Do you thing it was somehow unprofitable to run a recycling center in the free market?

I rarely recycle; it´s my rebellion. Recycling is just another form of tyranny and control, the method of coercion being to put a guilt trip on the people. It´s petty and perverted. We do occasionally put out cardboard boxes. Everything else goes in the waste basket, even the paper from the shredder, and then into the garbage can. Otherwise, we rarely put out our recycle bin.

Ours is pretty painless. Everything in our condo project goes into dumpsters and is taken away by a trash company, who purportedly sorts it and recycles what it can.

In single family neighborhoods paper is supposed to go in one bin along with plastics, glass, cans - recyclables. Green yard trash goes into another larger bin. Everything else goes into a catchall bin.

The notion that landfill will be substantially reduced is a pipe dream.

When I was in my 20´s I was a dedicated recycler. Then I became educated on the topic. Plus I love seeing the look on guests faces when they ask where to put their cans and I say well the garbage of course.

The thing about recycling that really irritates me is having to "wash the trash (cans, bottles)" before I put it in the bin.

My recycling plan is simple. I crush and save cans for the elderly neighbor who sells them to help get by. Cardboard, wood and the like get burned. Everything else goes in the trash.

Exactly, No.7 After regularly spotting an elderly man picking up cans on the side of the road on my way to work the wife and I began saving our alum cans in a separate trash bag. When two large black trash bags were full I kept them the the cargo area of my truck and the next time I saw the guy picking up cans, gave him the two bags gratis. I explained that its not worth going to the recycle center as a special trip for small volumes of recylables, but since he´s going anyway.....He was very appreciative and we gave him cans for years. That´s recycling.

#8, when I was a child there was a very nice older man who collected "junk" with a large pushcart. He would go through the curbside trash looking for anything of value, and everyone knew him. Some saved the most prized junk for him, such as copper pipe, brass, etc.

Currently, we have to recycle newspaper, cans, bottles, and plastics, but only those plastics marked with certain numbers. They say we don´t have to rinse it out, but since collection is only once weekly, who wants to keep unwashed containers around all that time, smelling and drawing vermin or pests like raccoons.

Sometimes I wonder how much water we waste washing old cans and bottles.

The only thing recycled here is cans, clear glass and plastic. We haven´t washed any of it for ten years and no one has complained. The heat required to melt any of this stuff would burn off any food residue anyway. The only recycling I´ve seen in my life that was worthwhile was the paper and tin can recycling during WWII (the metal went to the steel mill nearby) and the paper to a pulp mill in a nearby town. There was no plastic then. Around here, the landfills have gotten a little smarter. They build a methane collection, pipe network in the landfill before and as they fill it.

The original justification for recycling was the supposed shortage of landfill space (a lie). We were told that we had run out of room for our garbage (a lie). A we were told that recycling would save the planet (a lie).

See the pattern? If my trash is so valuable, have prisoners sort through it. I have better things to do.

I predict it won´t be long before Europe has its own Revolution to throw the EU out. If the EU thinks there will be no more landfills, I´ve got news for them. Mini landfills will pop up all over the country. And you can bet your last dollar the entitled muzzie invasion will refuse to comply because of some made up sharia law that countries have allowed to creep in. Nice to know you Europe.

We don´t recycle, except for plastic. My wife seems to enjoy it. And metal for money.

My dumpster out front, can receive any sort of trash. This is why I live in a COUNTY, not a city.

Hundreds of Yazidi volunteers are being trained to handle weapons and fight to drive the Islamic State from their homes. Refugees who fled to Syria to escape the jihadists´ onslaught in neighbouring Iraq are joining military training camps run by Kurdish armed factions and forming a volunteer army against the jihadists. "Until now the Yazidis have always relied on someone else to protect them," said Rostan, 33, the Kurdish commander at the training camp, who refused to give his full name. "Now they are learning to protect themselves." Tens of thousands of Yazidis were forced to flee their homes when

Though the United States is still Israel´s "best friend," it is the European Union which called again today for ´´all terrorist groups in Gaza to disarm." The EU statement, issued in Brussels after a meeting of EU Foreign Ministers on Friday, declared that a "return to the status quo prior to the latest conflict is not an option." [Snip] On the other hand, the two top US Administration officials--President Barack Obama and Secretary of State John Kerry--have made it clear that disarming Gaza is not a priority.

Maybe it was Wikileaks, the evil blond rat in South Park, that did it--but suddenly no one seems to care about the fate of Julian Assange. [Snip] Now though, no one seems to have been even slightly moved by Assange´s revelations over the weekend that two years stranded under effective house arrest in the Ecuadorian embassy in London has given him a heart condition and caused his skin to go even more vampire-pale.

IDF Preparing for Possible
Resumption of Rocket Fire

The IDF is preparing for a possible resumption of rocket fire from Gaza on Monday evening, as the current five-day ceasefire is set to expire. The ceasefire is set to expire at midnight, but Hamas has been known to violate truces before they officially expire. The high alert for Monday evening comes in the wake of estimates of diplomatic sources in Jerusalem that the chances of a lasting ceasefire deal before Monday night are very slim. Earlier on Sunday, as truce talks in Cairo continued, Israel pre-empted any agreement by unilaterally offering Gaza a concession and lifting a ban on

After all the controversy that has raged over our previous military campaign in Iraq, I can fully understand David Cameron´s hesitancy about getting involved in another costly intervention in the Middle East. [Snip] Add to this the memories of Mr Cameron´s humiliating Commons defeat this time last year when he wanted to bomb the Assad regime in Syria, and you can see why he is hoping that a combination of air strikes and surgical strikes by specialist teams of Special Forces will be enough to turn the tide against Islamic State fighters.

Violence continues in Ferguson, Missouri. It began on August 9 with the death of Michael Brown, an unarmed African-American teenager cut down by a white cop’s bullets. Peaceful demonstrations turned into looting, the local police went in with rubber bullets and tear gas, all hell broke loose and, eventually, Missouri’s governor pulled out the local police and sent in state officers instead. But the rioting only paused; it didn’t cease.

The amendments to the Egyptian 11-point truce proposal submitted by the Palestinian Arab delegation in Cairo was revealed on Monday morning, hours ahead of the end of the current ceasefire at midnight. [Snip] It also specifically calls for open trade between PA-controlled areas of Judea and Samaria with Gaza to include building materials, despite the use of cement to build terror tunnels. It is worth noting that Hamas has clarified that any truce deal would be seen only as an opportunity to plan the next terror war on Israel. The fourth clause adds to the call to have Israel coordinate

British spy planes were gathering intelligence on Islamic State fighters in Iraq yesterday as David Cameron warned the group poses a “clear danger” to safety on the streets of the UK. A new Rivet Joint plane joined six unarmed RAF Tornado GR4s to fly daily patrols from Cyprus over swathes of northern Iraq controlled by the brutal Sunni Muslim militants. They are sharing the intelligence with the US which has been carrying out airstrikes against IS fighters.

Britain was dragged deeper into the Iraq crisis last night as it emerged another 150 special forces troops are being deployed. Defence Secretary Michael Fallon said the mission had escalated beyond a humanitarian one and could last for months. British forces are now helping Iraq to ‘combat’ the rise of Islamic State and its extreme form of terrorism, he said. And in his most uncompromising intervention to date, Prime Minister David Cameron warned that the situation may now require ‘military action to go after the terrorists’. He said the Islamist fanatics of IS had to be stopped before they became

Kurdish forces in northern Iraq have taken control of Iraq´s largest dam after its capture by Islamic State (IS) militants, Kurdish officials say. Kurdish ground forces supported by US air strikes launched the operation to take Mosul dam on Sunday morning. Kurdish sources said they were still trying to clear mines and booby traps from the area round the dam, a process which could take several hours. The strategically important dam was seized by IS militants on 7 August. It supplies water and electricity to northern Iraq and there had been fears the IS militants could use it to flood

True to its usual ritual of condemning Israel and establishing an international commission of inquiry against it, the UN Council for Human Rights is directly responsible for the systematic killing of scores of Palestinians in Gaza. The bitter Israeli-Palestinian conflict has been going on for over 60 years and is rife with blood and emotion. Traditionally, the world, including Israel, has thought of the conflict as about territory, as a clash between cultures or a historical struggle.

An autopsy conducted on Michael Brown, the unarmed 18-year-old fatally shot by Ferguson, Missouri, police officer Darren Wilson last Saturday, shows that Brown was shot at least six times, twice in the head and all in the front of the body. The New York Times reported the results of a private autopsy conducted by Dr. Michael Baden, who was hired by the Brown family. Baden conducted the autopsy on Sunday, according to the Times. One bullet entered the top of Brown’s skull. Four struck him in the right arm. All bullets hit Brown in the front of the body, according to

They say a prosecutor could get a grand jury to indict a ham sandwich, and this always seemed like hyperbole, until Friday night a Texas grand jury announced an indictment of governor Rick Perry. The “crime” for which Perry faces a sentence of 5 to 99 years in prison is vetoing funding for a state agency. The conventions of reporting — which treat the fact of an indictment as the primary news, and its merit as a secondary analytic question — make it difficult for people reading the news to grasp just how farfetched this indictment is.

The Obama administration has done little to calm racial tensions as they spread from Manhattan to St. Louis to Los Angeles. Quite the opposite, some top officials have fueled African-American fears of racism with false accusations of anti-black discrimination. Attorney General Eric Holder’s race-baiting is no secret. Justice Department documents show the nation’s top cop gave thousands of dollars to help the Rev. Al Sharpton organize marches protesting the death of Trayvon Martin. Now he’s sent the civil-rights unit to St. Louis to do the same thing in the fatal shooting of Michael Brown. Less known, however, is the role of Labor Secretary Thomas

Officers are seeking the person who shot the critically-wounded victim after the 12am-5am curfew took hold in Ferguson, Missouri - eight days after Michael Brown, 18, was shot dead by police. Police said their strong response came after people broke into a restaurant and took position on the roof overlooking officers, while another man flashed a handgun as armoured vehicles approached.

Was Michael Brown a "gentle giant," a cigar thief, or a gang member? The black teenager had no adult criminal record, according to the St. Louis County prosecutor. Initial media profiles noted that family and friends described "Big Mike" as not "the type to fight" and "funny, silly, he would make you laugh."
