[PASSED] Promotion of Recycling

Promotion of Recycling
Category: Environmental – All Businesses - Mild



The World Assembly,

Recognizing that improved manufacturing processes often lead to an increased waste production due to cheaper products indirectly promoting a use and throwaway culture;

Understanding that technological limitations and economical concerns can lead to reservations regarding waste reduction programs;

Troubled, however, that many waste products contain materials that require significant amounts of time to decompose or are of toxic nature;

Concerned that unregulated accumulation of refuse inevitably leads to negative environmental effects due to contamination of water, air and soil and thus poses a danger for sapient species, animals and ecosystems;

Further concerned that uncontrolled increases of waste squanders valuable, rare and energy-intensive resources;

Thus believing that a reduction of waste would benefit all nations and their inhabitants;

Hereby,

    1. Defines for the purpose of this resolution:

      a) "Recyclable waste material" as a waste material, item or object that can be reprocessed into materials fit for manufacturing;

      b) "Recycling" as a process in which a recyclable waste material is converted into a state that is reusable for production;

      c) "Salvageable object" as a complex waste product that can, due to disassembly, yield recyclable materials;

      d) "Salvaging" as a process in which a salvageable object is disassambled into recyclable waste materials;

    2. Mandates:

      a) the introduction of recycling and salvaging as a means of waste reduction in all member nations in accordance to their technological and economical capabilities, unless such is already introduced and active;

      b) the implementation of an easily accessible system for the collection of recyclable materials and salvageable objects in said nations, unless such is already in place;

    3. Requires its member nations to encourage participation in recycling and salvaging, and the usage of through recycling recovered materials with the means of legislation, incentives or penalization;

    4. Clarifies that this resolution does neither prevent nor discrourage the implementation of other waste reduction methods before or after recycling takes place.

    5. Encourages its member nations to support the research of new recycling and waste reduction techniques to further reduce waste production.


"We surely hope that we are not the only ones who are concerned about the ever growing mountains of trash."

"We surely hope that we are not the only ones who are concerned about the ever growing mountains of trash."


Although not sure how effective this will be, I would still support as long as costs will not skyrocket.
VIEWS:
Pro- guns, freedom of religion, freedom of speech, police, military, non-traditional forms of energy, capitalism, jobs, business, healthy food options for citizens
Anti- welfare, abortions(in most cases), forced secularism, socialism, communism, unhealthy food and chemicals, mass-immigration, radical Islam

"It is much appreciated that you will take it into consideration, even though we don't agree on another subject.

That said, the costs should not be dramatically high since it requires the introduction of affordable means of recycling, and not the newest experimental technology available. We were thinking of including a WA office to inspect the capabilities of a nation for this, but we weren't sure if it was necessary."

IC: A half-grown black cat sat on the desk marked "Araraukar", washing himself. He paused for a while, to watch the screen where the current draft was showing, and then went back to washing himself.

A vaguely feminine voice, from under the proposal author's chair, said: "What about nations that already recycle everything they can?" The mysterious owner of the voice1 was gone before anyone could turn their attention that way.

1OOC note: Some of you may remember that there are three cats in WAKK... ;)
The Head Inshpekshuuner looks like a dark grey kitten with yellow eyes and a small white patch on his chest, he's about 4-5 months old. He's much smarter than you could guess from the way he talks.
-- my main nation is Araraukar

Ambassador Schreiner looks under his chair. "Wasn't there... huh..."
Quite confused he answered the question, not sure who exactly to adress. "Well, it is fair to assume that such a nation meets all requirements of the proposal and won't have to implement further changes, for the time being. Especially a nation that not only recycles everything they can, but really everything, wouldn't have to adjust anything. But it still encourages the research of new methods. So, as technology marches on, waste that might not be recycable today could become so in the future, which will then require implementation if economically feasable."

OOC: I knew that I had seen that used somewhere before, just never on Nationstates, but I couldn't quite place where I had seen it before. I lived in Germany when I was younger, so it must have evoked some nostalgic memory in me. But yes, it would probably be better to use the more standardized use of the quotation marks, as used in other WA proposals.

Uh, I do not think there are any major, if any at all religions, opposing this. If there is some little group... then, we can look over them. We can't give in to this extent.
VIEWS:
Pro- guns, freedom of religion, freedom of speech, police, military, non-traditional forms of energy, capitalism, jobs, business, healthy food options for citizens
Anti- welfare, abortions(in most cases), forced secularism, socialism, communism, unhealthy food and chemicals, mass-immigration, radical Islam

Since all the clauses are fairly weak and category environmental - All industries is both the equivalent of strength "strong" and going to be fairly objectionable to most people who care about stats, consider category "manufacturing". Seems like a good fit since this applies to manufactured products only.

"This is a good point. I wasn't so sure about the category myself... it is changed now, however. The category Environmental - Manufacturing does make alot more sense in retrospective and considering the strenght argument."

Overall I think this is a very well tailored proposal; not so strong that it puts unacceptable burdens on nations, while not so weak that it compromises it's goal. I think the preamble needs a little work, but then I prefer long preambles with lots of arguments, and I know other GA member prefer ones "people will actually read".

I do notice that you define the term Salvageable object but never use it in your mandates, though.

"Another fair point. I will change the order of the definitions to account for that."

"Thank you, my office sat quite some time on the first draft before we presented it here. Regarding the preamble, I will see if I can work out something, although it might take some time.

As for the salvageable objects, they are used in clause 3, although I admit that a slight mess up in the grammar might have successfully hidden it."

It's in 3, sort of, but yeah, either the definition or the useage should be changed for consistency.

"While this proposal is within the goals of Excidium Planetis, I am afraid that this proposal strikes me as too weak. It requires the creation of recycling programs, but does not seem to require that anyone actually recycle anything. Nations should be required to encourage recycling, not merely be urged to encourage recycling, a double non-mandate that seems particularly ineffective." Blackbourne declares.

I do not understand your concern. Clause two mandates the creation of recycling programs, while clause three requires an easily accessible collection system. This is the core of a recycling program, and mandatory.

Clause four cannot be mandatory because it deals with (presumably tax)incentives and (presumably either judicial or tax)penalization, which the WA cannot touch. Clause five is only tangentially related

"Clause Two mandates the creation of a recycling program, but not it's use. Nothing must actually be recycled. And Clause Three mandates that the program be easily accessible, not that it must be used in any way. I'm afraid nations which do not want to recycle may create programs which they then actively discourage or ignore." Blackbourne argues. "I am not sure where you get this idea that Clause Four cannot be made mandatory. Nothing prohibits the World Assembly from requiring nations to incentivize certain practices through legislative means."

"If this is the case, we would gladly change Clause Four into an obligatory clause. We chosed to urge originally because we weren't sure if it would be an intrusion into domestic taxation policy."

Schreiner rereads the Clause and adds: "I guess as a mandate it would still allow the nation in question to decide on how to implement those incentives."
