Acknowledging and Reversing the Recurring Failure of Zero Waste to Landfill Initiatives

Description:The high consumption, convenience-focused lifestyle which now prevails around the globalized market world has created a modern waste problem which poses long-term environmental threats to human society. These include air, water and soil pollution, toxic impacts to health, and the unsustainable loss of land to develop new landfill sites. Even landfilling’s oft-touted alternative of incineration – an option receiving much attention in British Columbia as of late – entails its own set of pollution and toxic health issues, and ultimately comes up short as a true alternative since it generates significant amounts of residuals that still require landfill disposal.
