Title: Recycling the big picture .

Create - Consume - Dispose .

Recycle the economics of it .

Not saving - Substituting .

Every shrink-wrapped toy or tool .

Stamped with energy-intensive history .

Mountains of ore have been mined .

And the collection truck consumes energy .

Large truck - True cost - Few bottles .

Recycle - don't bury or burn .

Substitute scrap for virgin material .

The explosive growth of plastic .

The incinerator solution .

Under the landfill carpet .

Problem ? What problem ?

Out of sight is out of mind .

Out of your mind .

Your tiny mind .

Stimulated by mass production .
