Major nice (even fancy) housing developments (houses starting at 500K) are being built on top of dumps. Now, why on earth would you buy a house that is being built on top of a dump! Let alone spend 500K for it?

That's true! However, people would rather take it as an investment rather than 'a place to live at'...

Only 4 Tpers (CC, Anne, Sam and ISA)gave their comments on this issue. What about the others?

We should have fun here like playing words games always but there are certain moments where we should sit down and think of things happening around us.

Bla bla bla... (Mum says my age doesn't match my actual identity),

I read 2 successive articles on the visit to Denmark which they are very successful tackling the problem of garbeage and even they are lacking of garbage till they are looking to buy extra garbage from Sweden! They produce electicity through wind turbines which is one of the largest manufacturer in the world!

The point is: Danish people voluntar themselves to assist on this matter and I feel greatly touched with their good civicness!

The city of Guelph in Canada is on the right track with their waste management. Not only do they have an excellent recycling program but also a very comprehensive garbage collection.

Each household seperates their garbage into "Wet", "Dry" and "Waste". The Wet and Dry are the types of recycling and the waste are the materials that can not be.

The wet stuff is composted and the dry processed. I dug up a pdf with some more info: here

Thanks for your postings, Joz and Brenden (Brenden seems pretty intellectual, got to know you better after this).

I just admired at those countries especially scandanavia - the government is highly civic and that region is one of the most educated with highly civicness in the world - in terms of helping the 3rd country, coping with natural and environmental issues, contributing money and expertise to victims of natural disaster and etc. Compared to more complicated nations like USA, Japan, UK, Australia - these small scandanavians seem pretty averagely intellectual in their society.
