Not everyone is pleased with the system of fire and finance you describe.

People are furious about so many recycling fires, the toxic smoke, and say they have been started deliberately. Enough is enough, it has to stop.

Where there is a scheme there is always a schemer -. Technology is as ever a double edged sword. What the people want and what they actually get are always two different things. Let's be logical -. Recycling collections are all well and good providing you have in place adequate facilities to deal with it upon collection. Most places haven't. We send almost half our 'collections' abroad to other countries for 'sorting'. Therefore - ways and means have to be found to deal with the residues. Some operators are just that 'operators' and have their own methods of dealing with the problem and at the same time making it 'pay'. Accidental burnings is just one method whereby everyone (with the exclusion of the local people and the planet) gets what they want. Society is going through what I would call 'a phase' in that the transition towards a modern technological revolution has its hiccups, waste being one of them. Plastics will eventually become a pariah as biodegradable s take over and packaging will be reduced to keep prices down and reduce waste. Even methods of 'destruction' will change in order that the individual household can 'remove' any offending left-overs. It's called 'progress'. The only snag - we shall all have to be patient and await its arrival.Very Happy Very Happy

Judge Stuart Driver QC said Kilroe’s offending was "deliberate and for financial gain."

They should be prosecuted for bad storage arrangements unless the fire was arson. In which case the first place to look is at home. The Fire Dept people know the score. Time someone blew the whistle and got things done properly.

Nothing can be done.

Plumes and clouds of toxic black smoke of burning plastic, oil, chemical, industrial and electronic waste of all kinds are an everday part of the British landscape. It's been that way for many years, and increasingly so, a result of how our business, financial, legal, political, economic and regulatory systems are structured and work together. The public accept it, same as heavy traffic and associated fumes, as part of economic activity.

  jocolor All together now: Nothing can be done, nothing can be done, no-thing, no-thing, can be done!

Laws, regulation and policing that are fit for purpose. Where there's a will -. But there's not the money and nobody works for nothing. Sad world - but that's the reality. Sad Surprised Surprised Surprised Surprised
