Review for Container Recycling Institute, Culver City, CA, USA

Rating: 5 stars  

Around 80% of the world's beverage and water bottles end up in landfills or incinerators .... or along roadways, in rivers and streams or floating in the ocean gyres. This is inexcusable when with very little cost, a deposit and redemption system can be offered for spent containers that have proven to collect and recycle over 80% of their valuable component resources. The Container Recycling Institute has been the prime source for data regarding collection systems and their relative success. The CRI is the honest voice in this discussion and has won the respect of scientists, politicians, recyclers, municipalities, and countless individuals worldwide.

Review for Container Recycling Institute, Culver City, CA, USA

Rating: 5 stars  

Fact based "resource recovery" education comes in many forms and flavors, and is often used to skew reality by biased selection. The Container Recycling Institute presents all of the facts about the recapture of spent beverage and water bottles, cans, and cartons in easily digestible format. These facts reveal that redemption or deposit systems and other public incentives increase collections by 300% without reducing product consumption or damaging curbside collections. The collected plastic, metal, and glass resources are "pure stream" and avoid costly mechanical sorting and contamination in their ultimate use in recycled products. We need more honesty in utilizing proven systems to reduce waste, energy consumption, nonrenewable resources, greenhouse gas emissions, and unrecovered recyclable resources.
