NOT really. These recycling places are getting so filled up there's no room for it. Therefore, it ALL goes to landfills. Then shipped overseas. It IS a scam.

I agree with MareCad T. Someone should do a piece on how much recycling really does get recycled vs what's still goes to a landfill.

I was amazed by this because in NJ, thes same process is carried out.
The biggest problems, and I'm sure the UK has them are the larger cities who do not take recycling as seriously as the suburbs.I am not being opinionated, these are facts that have been well written in the local papers.

Noted and video watched. We do have good recycling plants here in most parts of Canada. I was shocked at an article I read about all the electronics recycled going on ships to a small place in Africa. There were huge mounds of electronics. Ours are taken apart at the recycling place, and parts all sorted, as some parts are worth quite a bit of money. Of course our cities are smaller and we have a lot of small towns around the cities. Just recently I also read an article of all the junk floating from Japan and now a lot arriving around Vancouver Island, and they need volunteers to clean it up.
Thank You Cher.
