    That would only be fair. China sends us junk, we should send our junk back, yet now they won’t take it. More unbalanced trade with China. We need to follow Trump into the trade war and sort this out.

    I was once told by the CEO of a large multinational waste management company who I was interviewing for a large contract that the solution to pollution is dilution.

    Needless to say they got the job because they offered 'value for money', shortly after I lost hope and went sailing.

    The predicable result of a badly thought out EU Directive.
    It promoted waste separation instead of waste reduction.

    The chattering classes object to every form of wsate treatment and convince themselves of their superiority by separating waste without asking how many waste re-processing plants are in the UK.

    However, the same applies to the United States, which is not subject to EU Directives.

    Certainly we all have a problem.
