Proposed recycling plan is best approach

Dear editor, Re: "LCBO should get on board," September 15 editorial. Premier Dalton McGuinty's provincial plan to expand recycling by enacting a deposit system for LCBO glass is the best approach to expanding glass recycling rates across Ontario. This program promotes "closed loop" recycling (glass to glass) vs. using scrap glass as aggregate. Closed loop glass recycling saves natural resources, reduces air emissions, conserves energy, helps combat global warming and is universally accepted as the preferred method over aggregate replacement. Using scrap glass as an aggregate replacement is not recycling. It is another form of disposal. Large quantities of LCBO sold glass remains unrecovered while much that is collected through curbside collection is rendered into un-recyclable waste. Additional quantities end up as aggregate. With Premier McGuinty's plan, Ontario will create a glass recycling system that could be a standard for recycling effectiveness and efficiency in North America.
