Kao's Noble Mission on E-Waste

Waste Clearance London-After almost twenty years in the software business with top companies like Oracle and Hewlett-Packard, James Kao became weary by the amount of waste develop when people began to replace their electronic stuff for latest ones.

Enraged with technologies such as computers, television and other stuff from US buyers that goes to dump sites in China, Africa and other countries.

Kao started the Green Citizen company that gathers and organizes, discards old automated gadgets in the Bay Area. The company make sure that the devices are either reprocessed into raw materials, repaired, overhauled or resold.

According to the U.S. Environmental Protection Agency, the Green Citizen company will get a this holiday season will bring a new batch of electronic surplus to the part of the 2.4 million tons seen each year.

"The holiday period is the biggest buying time for most consumer electronics, and it absolutely results in more e-waste," said Barbara Kyle, national coordinator of theElectronics TakeBack Coalition, a recycling advocacy group.
"When it comes to recycling, it's an afterthought," said Kao, 55, who has also founded two software companies. "All the energy is going to how do we get the next revenue from the new best gadget, and there is never a thought to how to get it back."
While Green Citizen is trying to offset gadget waste, Kao said it still isn't a match for a consumer culture that encourages people to seek the latest and greatest technology. About 80 percent of U.S. electronic waste ends up on container ships and then ditched in developing countries, where companies hire workers to extract the core minerals without any environmental or worker-safety oversight, he said.

"It's going to get worse and worse," Kao said. "Initially I tried to fight it, but you can't."

Unwanted gifts and still functioning products can be brought as donation to the latest Corner shop at Llansmlet Household Waste Recycling Center.

Trish Flint, recycling officer, said: "The festive period is a time of year where a lot of waste is produced, but there are many ways in which you can take simple steps to reduce the amount of waste you put in your black bags and in turn, save money.

"Swansea Council, like all other local authorities, has to hit a Welsh Government recycling target of 52 per cent by March or face the prospect of significant fines. So we all have to do our bit."

All items at the corner shop are being sold for £1 each including electronics stuff and the proceeds goes to the educational workshop conducted by Swansea's recycling volunteers.

Add caption

Waste Clearance London-West Sussex County Council and its waste and recycling partner Viridor have join with renewable energy company Living Fuels LTD to assist homeowners in  recycling their used cooking oil for energy use.

Citizens of West Sussex will be able to pour their cooking oil in collection tanks in nine household waste recycling centers (HWRC ) beginning this Christmas. There are already several collections tanks in 14 of East Sussex HWRC. 

After the oil is collected, it is brought to Living Fuels recovery plan and process to become a bio-liquid called LF100.

The LF 100 then is then used for the sister company Living Power for  heat and power plants as a source of carbon neutral energy to provide the national grid for emergency power.

Bill Griffiths, Viridor’s National Recycling Manager, said: “Help make this year’s Christmas a greener one, and bring your cooking oil to one of the household waste recycling sites that are offering the service.

“The best thing to do is for people to put the used oil in plastic bottles, so we can recycle the container as well.

“Why not make the most of the journey by bringing along any other recyclable items left over from the festive season.”
Lionel Barnard, West Sussex County Council’s Deputy Leader, with responsibility for waste and recycling, said that the county’s recycling rates could be boosted if more people recycled their cooking oil.

He said: “In the UK, we are at the forefront of new technology with respect to recycling, which is illustrated with our excellent overall recycling rate of 44 per cent in West Sussex.

“However, we’re always looking for new things for people to recycle to help push this figure even higher, so are really pleased to be launching the service.”

Rob Murphy, Operations Director at Living Fuels, added: "Turning cooking oil into a chemical-free bioliquid results in higher levels of energy recovery than manufacturing carbon-hungry biodiesel, making our process the most sustainable use of waste vegetable oil.

He added: “[A]s well as providing a valuable source of renewable energy, recycling cooking oil can also help prevent it ending up in the sewerage network.”

Collection tanks for used household cooking oil will be set up at the following HWRCs:

I overbuy because I want everything to be perfect. It's hard to get portions right and I don't want to appear stingy so I always cook far more than I need to."

Britons also poured 15 millions cups of roast turkey fat in the kitchen sink that could fill an Olympic size swimming pool.

Top Reasons to Clean Your Home

I always look for reasons why I should help my mom cleaning the entire house and she made me realize that keeping our home clean would give us these advantages.
To – dos for everyone
Every time my mom asks me to help her cleaning, i am so confused on where to start. Everyone is required to help cleaning. So, I start with my room. I get to know what to do with stuffs in my room after the cleanup. So, if you want everyone to get responsible with their things and trash, you should make them help you in the cleaning. Bond with each other while cleaning, it will be over before you know it.
Lessen allergies

As for me who has allergic rhinitis, dust and other allergens should never be allowed in my room. I should keep my room clean every day or else, sneezing and watery eyes will get in my way. I don’t want to spend the entire day sneezing because of the accumulated dust in my room. If your kids have allergies or asthma, you should be keeping your home clean or you’ll be spending some of your budget on hospital bills and medicine.

No more whole day cleanups

If you keep your home clean daily, you don’t have to spend the entire weekend for cleanups. You can go on outing or do some bonding activities with your family. Spending a couple of minutes on wiping the tabletops and sweeping the floor will save you an entire weekend. So, don’t wait for your chores to pile up.

Welcome visitors

With a clean home, you don’t have to hurry picking up some trash on the floor or wiping the tabletops or worst, picking up those shirts on the sofa. Be prepared always, you wouldn't know if somebody from your neighborhood or family would drop by your house – you won’t have to be sorry that your house is full of mess.

Clean and healthy living

Every time I see the messy tabletops, I get so stressed. I want everything to be clean and in order. Having a clean home would not only bring you a good ambiance but, it would also keep you away from allergies and illnesses caused by the unseen microbes in your sofa or even in your bed. Always keep in mind, clean home, healthy living.

Worst Polluter Fined for £200K

A recycling company in Scotland was penalized with a record of £ 200,000 for burying waste underground without a Waste Management License.

Doonin Plant Ltd and director Gary Doonin, 47, were found guilty of two charges for keeping waste that will lead to environmental disaster.

Doonin sentence will take effect next year at Livingston Sheriff Court and has been cautioned not to cause further pollution or will be imprisoned.

According to the Company's QC John Hamilton told in court, the company is closing for business together with its 27 employees since he doesn't want to be in that kind of field anymore.

The penalty is the highest ever in Scotland for the violation of environmental regulations.

Doonin denied all the accusations and he thought that  he was single out by waste watchdog SEPA and will appeal the sentenced which concerns to the colliery site at Armadale, West Lothian.

Mr. Hamilton also pointed out that it was wrong for the Crown to state that they are the worst polluter in Scotland.

He said: “SEPA publishes a list of its worst polluters every year and Doonin Plant has never been on that list.

“There was no gas and no evidence of any watercourses being polluted.”

According to Sheriff Douglas Kinloch said the company was guilty of a "serious and significant breach" that can lead to hazard in the environment and public health.

He also showed that the company has been penalized for such charge a few months before the 2010 Armadale incidents and had prior convictions.

SEPA area manager Ian Buchanan said: “The sentence is a positive result for the public and legitimate waste operators.”

Craig Harris, head of the Crown Office and Procurator Fiscal Service wildlife and environmental crime unit, said: “Doonin Plant and Gary Doonin carried out activities with a total disregard for the environment – and not for the first time.”

Rubbish Clearance London High Buildings A Tall Task

Rubbish Clearance London
Recycling organizations have expressed their sentiments on government officials to  intensify the recycling efforts being done on residences located on  high rise buildings  since thousands of homeowners don't have the proper venue to recycle their rubbish.

High rise residents only recycle around 10% of their garbage which is below the 43% national average for recycling.

Latest reports on most high rise residential building  recycling showed problems such as low to zero recycling and food waste collections.

Most collections sites are located at the bottom of the building which is more economical than a door to door type of rubbish clearance London but the result is a low recycling turn out.

Rubbish Removal London
Despite this problem the London waste and Recycling board through a proper implementation of their program have increased their recycling collection in London Districts. Hackney area have produces 11000 tonnes of dry recycling materials and 654 tonnes of food waste in high rise building since 2010.

The suggestions of the report is to create its own unique strategy for each tower blocks and increase the budget for recycling  to include areas outside of London.

Another suggestion is a partnership between housing business owners and recycling volunteer organization to look for vacant      areas for the implementation of  their own recycling programs.

Edward Hobson , Deputy Director of Green Alliance said : “Doing the green thing is difficult for individuals in tower blocks because often they do not have direct control over their heating, power and waste collection. 

“But we should prioritize transforming this communal infrastructure as it offers real potential to engage communities and deliver significant improvements for everyone in the block.” 

An estimated 390,000 flats in high rise blocks in England. Recycling programs must be done soon in order to safeguard our environment.

Moving of Furniture and Huge Cabinets tips

Removing Furniture for Cleaning

I am always having a hard time cleaning my room. With all the stuff I have to move around, I might need two more people for moving furniture. My bed and cabinet are just so heavy that I can’t even push or pull it towards the other end of my room. After realizing a couple of things, here’s what I've done with my cabinet and bed. You could also do this on some other furniture you have whenever you want to do a general cleaning on your apartment or house all by yourself or house moving.

Slide, don't lift

If you think that your furniture is too heavy, don’t even try to lift it, chances of ending on a hospital or clinic due to the snapping of your back is high. Lifting things around your house has a proper way. Bend your knees, hold the thing to be lifted with your arms, straighten your back, and move. Know your limits and always remember you’re not an Iron man. You can always hire moving companies for tough task.

Use towels and cardboard

Placing some towels or cardboard underneath your furniture would lessen the effort that you need to exert to move your furniture. It will be easy for you to push or pull your furniture without leaving any scratches on the floor. I even think that placing the furniture on a carpet would make it easier to move around the house.

Magic sliders

Push or Pull

Pushing your furniture and cabinets would seem to be easy but actually, pulling has more advantages than pushing. Pulling things around towards their perfect location, you get to see what’s on your way and you get to lead the furniture towards the right path.

Empty your cabinets and furniture

Pushing, pulling, or lifting your furniture and cabinets will be easy if it is empty. Aside from considering the weight, it will prevent your things from falling. You know what a mess it will make when things inside your cabinets falls out of place.

For your house clearance needs call Clear It Waste -02085042380. A moving van is always ready to take away all the worry as well as the unwanted items, and remember that we sweep up afterwards. We are fully licensed and insured for all aspects of our service.

On a mission to turn around decline in recycling rates

FOR many residents, recycling has now become second nature.

Dutifully separating their cardboard, paper, tins, plastic, glass and garden waste from their general rubbish, thousands of people have helped fuel a steady rise in recycling – and a reduction in landfill.

Councils recycle 53% of waste, Wales figures show

More than half of the waste collected by councils in Wales is now recycled, Welsh government figures show.

Local authorities recycled or composted 53% of waste they gathered in the three months from April to June this year.

Over the quarter, Denbighshire council had the highest rate at 60.5%, and Rhondda Cynon Taf council (RCT) had the lowest rate with 44%.

On average they recycled 50% over the year to the end of June 2012, compared to 46% for the year to July 2011.

The next highest performing local authorities over the last quarter were: Caerphilly 59.9%, Monmouthshire 58.1%, Vale of Glamorgan 57.8% and Flintshire 57.7%.

This achievement is largely the result of every local authority in Wales providing a weekly food collection service and householders embracing the system so enthusiastically”

John Griffiths AM
Environment Minister
Over the 12 months to the end of June this year, eight councils saw their recycling rates fall, with Swansea, RCT, Torfaen and Newport finishing the period with a figure below 50%.

Cardiff council's recycling rate rose five percentage points from 50% to 55% in that period.

Figures also showed the total amount of municipal waste generated in Wales has generally decreased, with the tonnage 3% lower for April to June 2012 than for the same quarter in 2011.

The amount of household waste produced per person in Wales also continued to decrease, falling to 63kg per person in April to June 2012, from 69kg per person in April to June 2011.

Environment Minister John Griffiths said: "I am delighted that Wales is now recycling or composting more than half of its municipal waste.

"These impressive statistics are the result of the hard work of Wales' local authorities, and the excellent efforts of householders in separating out their waste for recycling.

"This achievement is largely the result of every local authority in Wales providing a weekly food collection service and householders embracing the system so enthusiastically.

"Separating out food waste not only diverts significant waste away from landfill - it also makes us far more aware of the food we are wasting, which can often result in reduced waste and lower food bills."

"We must now keep the momentum going and continue to build on our recycling success so that we can meet our challenging targets of 70% recycling by 2025 and zero waste by 2050."

Mr Griffiths also launched a plan on Friday to boost recycling rates and reduce landfill from the construction and demolition industry.

Recycling in Your Own Home

Saving water 

You can save water in your home by hiring a plumber to redesign your water system so that it can recycle the water to flush the toilet after you take a bath. The water from the rain barrel is also a good source of free water to flush the toilet so an eco-friendly design is all you need.

Channel the water from the shower and sink to the garden plants so that you can maximize your water waste. Make sure you use a biodegradable soap that is not harmful to the environment so that you won't have a complicated filter for your water waste.

Making a Compost

Composting is one of the best ways to recycle.All you have to do is find a bin and dump it in. A little mixing once in a while can help. Trash from your garden and food waste can go to your  compost. Try to make a hanging garden once your compost is ready or donate it to the nearest plot in your area as soil. Making compost out of your food waste can make your garbage bins fill slowly and it won't smell as bad since it only contains non-recyclable materials. Later you can add paper and napkins in your compost as it becomes more active.

E-waste Recycling

Electronic gadgets recycling are now popular. Different companies have been creating their own program to recycle electronic products. Non-profit organizations fix old but still usable computers and donate them to schools. Other companies resell your gadgets to others at a lower price for others to reuse. Cell phones donated for soldiers and senior citizen's use.

Give away your old appliance to a repair shop, or training school so that they can practice repairing it. Most cities accept hazardous waste and electronics for recycling.

Avoid buying the things you don't need and avoid hoarding. You can save a lot of money by having only things that you really need. If your stuff is piling up then it is time to donate your things. Free cycle, Recyclers Exchange and Craigslist can be your savior for a clutter free home. Make it a habit to donate or recycle things when you don't use anymore.

More Than Bottles and Cans: Five Ways to Reduce, Reuse and Recycle on America Recycles Day

Yesterday marked America Recycles Day, the only nationally recognized day dedicated to promoting and celebrating recycling in the United States. Organized by Keep America Beautiful, America Recycles Day is a time for each of us to think about our level of personal waste and to consider ways to reduce it.

Every year since 1980, the rate of Americans who recycle has increased. And, as most of us know by now, recycling is about more than just bottles, cans, newspapers and magazines, although recycling all of those is important! New innovations -- along with some tried and true methods -- allow us to easily recycle more than just those items required by law. Today, think about what you can do to decrease your own environmental impact and make the "reduce, reuse and recycle" mantra a part of your daily routine.

Here are five ways to get started:

The Rise Of Poorly Made Solar PV Modules


Has the pressure to compete in a world market beset by an equipment glut and plummeting prices over the past two years led to an increase in poor quality solar panels?

In public places, however, such as the beach and parks, recycling is not yet an established habit.
But in Delray Beach and four other cities in Palm Beach County, a recycling program for public spaces is out to change the people's perception of what goes in those elusive blue bins.

Highland Park Recycling efforts are Amazing

Highland Park officials said the city's recent plastic foam recycling effort has resulted in the collection of 4,417 pounds of the common packaging material.
"That's a lot of foam," said City Council member Steven Mandel, who pushed for the program.
The city launched its foam recycling effort in 2011 after officials previously considered a band on plastic foam products, such as food carryout containers. Plastic foam, or polystyrene, is commonly referred to by its trademark name, Styrofoam.
