A career in composting

Councils across the country are reruiting people to work on recycling schemes. One such job is that of community composting officer for East Riding Council. The Mail on Sunday, reactionary to the end, feel that this should be mocked for some reason. They go on about the terrible cost, implying that it would be better spent on teachers and such like, ignoring or oblivious to the fact that well run recycling schemes will save the councils more than they’re spending on the people running them.

    Most people don’t realize that it costs them something to throw something away. They are paying for janitors, garbage collectors, landfill operators, and then water treatment to attempt to undo the damage to the water system contaminated by garbage leachate.
