Re: “Can Berkeley Tackle Its Plastics Problem?

My experience is that Berkeley is burying its head in the sand on this issue. When viewed from a total life cycle perspective, plastic is extremely valuable. For example (and using a case you site), it is the best alternative for the transport of detergents. Glass is great, but the weight and its fragility make it cost prohibitive. So, it will be used. Next we need to focus on what we need to do is find out IF it can be recycled, by looking at restricting the types which can be sold. If it can't be recycled, then use it as fuel in an incinerator (which is done throughout Europe with much success). This is a bit like the methane gas from the (former) Berkeley dump, now known as the Marina which is simply burned....what a crime.
