Garbage is about recycling

It is time we accepted that each household and commercial establishment is a waste generator and so a potential polluter

Last fortnight, I discussed the need to reinvent garbage management in our cities so that we can process waste and not “landfill” it. This, as I wrote, required households and institutions to segregate their waste at source so that it could be managed as a resource. It also means that we need to limit how much is dumped by imposing a tax on landfill. I want to follow up on this idea this fortnight.

  • City needs high parking charges to control traffic chaos and dampen parking demand and car usage.

  • Higher revenue from increased parking charges should be reinvested to improve public transport
