  • Landfills – 22 in WA. They contribute to disease, groundwater contamination, greenhouse gases, vermin etc. It wastes valuable resources and treasures such as minerals, energy, forests, water, petroleum, and habitat. Don’t look just at the product but what has gone into getting it to you – involves factory, shop, transport etc. It saves you money, get more out of what you pay for and pay for less.
  • 40 YEARS AGO We consumed less Ate more home grown or fresh produce with little/no packaging (eg Butchers vs Supermarkets) Food scraps were feed to dogs/ chooks/ garden Belongings repaired rather than thrown away
  • The amount of waste I throw out each month fits in a one litre milk carton – David Suzuki The average West Australian produces 117 kg of waste a month, or around 100 one litre milk cartons. * NB – Greenwaste vols. Not included ~18 kT pa
  • The 3R’s are a simple guide which can help us minimise our waste. Recycle (good)&gt; Reuse (better)&gt;Reduce (best) Remember first reduce, then reuse and then recycle or compost what is left, which makes sense when thinking about the diagram we were just viewing. Suggest rethink as the first “R”. A lot of waste reduction comes down to rethinking things which we take for granted.

  • By using the same item more than once or preferably many times – saves resources, landfill space and money.
  • Every tonne of steel recycled saves 1.5 tonnes of iron ore, 0.5 tonnes of coal and 40% of the water and 75% of the energy it takes to make a tonne of new steel In WA we used 5000 tonnes of steel cans in 1999, less than 20% were recycled – That’s over 60 million steel cans going into our rubbish tips Recycled aluminium uses 95% LESS energy than sourcing aluminium from bauxite mining Recycling one aluminium can saves enough electricity to run a tv for 3 hours.

  • BPA = bisphenol A is a key monomer in production of epoxy resins and in the most common form of polycarbonate plastic. A 2010 report from the United States Food and Drug Administration (FDA) raised further concerns regarding exposure of fetuses, infants and young children Polycarbonate plastic, which is clear and nearly shatter-proof, is used to make a variety of common products including baby and water bottles, sports equipment, medical and dental devices, dental fillings and sealants, eyeglass lenses, CDs and DVDs, and household electronics. BPA is also used in the synthesis of polysulfones and polyether ketones, as an antioxidant in some plasticizers, and as a polymerization inhibitor in PVC. Epoxy resins containing bisphenol A are used as coatings on the inside of almost all food and beverage cans however, due to BPA health concerns, in Japan epoxy coating was mostly replaced by PET film Diethylhydroxylamine (DEHA) is a chemical used in some plastics. It is often used as a protective wrap or cover
