Episode of Series “Man builds - man destroys”.
In the past we have burnt and buried waste but today such solutions are inadequate. Here, retrieval recycling, and other environmentally positive forms of waste disposal, including “Mount Trashmore” - a recreational park complete with ski-run, built with waste from neighbouring communities - are examined
