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."

Leftover food,bottles and cans can be reuse or recycled to increase the recycling rates of the city and help reduce waste that can harm the environment.

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.

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:

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.”
