My opus seems to have got lost. Apologies if this is repetition.
I do not see this as a conundrum. The benefit is to rid the place of rubbish and recycling is only one way. Any economic benefit is almost beside the point but seems to have taken over. If plastic cannot be recycled I would rather see it simply incinerated because at least the heat generated can be used. Recycling was always supposed to be a by product not an end in itself.
