In this article, we will consider the worldwide problem of increasing the tonnage of garbage on Earth and how to make sure that garbage does not appear at all in principle. It is known that huge piles of garbage generated by previous civilizations have not been found in archaeology. It can be assumed that only our civilization generates garbage in such a huge volume. And this is natural, because huge piles of garbage are generated by a huge pile of industries operating uncontrollably, incoherently. There is predatory mining on the planet to generate even more garbage instead of using the amount of products already created, which must be strictly accountable and undergo full processing at the same factories from where it was produced.
Garbage surrounds our lives and lives next to us. He is everywhere: at work, in my head, on TV screens, on the street, in the store, etc.
What is garbage? These are objects of the material world that have lost the need to use the function for which they are intended.
But this is for the consumer.
For production, most of what is considered to be garbage does not lose its functions as a material and even a commodity, it is a very valuable raw material that can reduce production costs by up to 50%-70%!!! In our opinion, garbage from this point of view is not considered at all as a valuable raw material now on planet Earth, and it is here that the solution to the problem of where garbage comes from lies. It turns out an amazing situation: those who are most interested in recycling garbage – enterprises – do nothing at all in this area and suffer huge losses because of their stupid laziness. That’s because none of them has ever asked the question: how much does such a free life cost the company in general? How much does the garbage cost and how much does the company lose annually without doing anything about the garbage problem?
Let’s figure it out. Based on the fact that the accounting life of goods and equipment is 8 years (depreciation costs eat up the cost of goods like rust), a simple calculation shows that the cost of non–food garbage is 50-75% of the cost of a new product!!! Imagine how much money a capitalist can get back into his pocket if he takes apart the goods he produces after taking them out of service! It’s just a gold mine. And this is despite the fact that the capitalist himself will practically drop the cost of purchasing new materials. He will, in fact, produce a new product, without acquiring anything for this, except live labor according to grandfather Marx.
The problem of garbage is significantly aggravated by the so-called global (i.e., mortifying in the ancient sense of the word “globa”) economy. The bottom line is that you and I often become consumers of products from foreign factories and we cannot return materials that are considered garbage for us, and our factories will not accept such garbage, because they do not know what it is made of, and technological processes and molds may be different.
Where is garbage born at all?
The first point is in people’s heads. There is garbage in thoughts, which eventually generates material garbage.
The teacher teaches you to create new products without worrying about the fact that after operation the product can be reused. An engineer designs products without laying down the reuse function, a builder builds houses without even thinking that they will have to be demolished sometime, we people buy goods in supermarkets without thinking at all whether it is necessary in such quantity, and in general whether all this is necessary?
Who pays for the garbage? The answer is obvious – the consumer. He seems to be very rich, because in fact, after the operation, he allows himself to throw everything away. The TV broke for $ 1000 – we throw it away, it doesn’t matter, we’ll buy a new one. A new iPhone came out – we get rid of the old one without hesitation – in Moscow they say they just throw them away. Nonsense – you’ll think $ 1000. After 10 years of operation, the car broke down? It doesn’t matter, we’ll scrap it and buy a new one. It turns out that we live in a world of millionaires! They don’t need anything if they allow themselves to throw money like that. To put it simply, you have eaten too much, dear comrades.
How much does garbage cost for the consumer?
On average, a family of three people spends 40-60 thousand rubles a month, i.e. an average of $ 800. Taking into account the above, it turns out that 50% of the amount spent eventually turns into garbage, i.e. $ 400 per month. Based on 10 years, it turns out that we buy garbage on 400$*12*10 = 48000$!!! This is approximately comparable to the cost of housing 2-3 room apartments in ordinary Russian cities. And this is for 10 years without any mortgage! Many, probably, reading these lines understood why they can’t accumulate money – because of the garbage in their head! It turns out that our costs are 50% made up of garbage! What a discovery!
Then it turns out that the problem of garbage is the number 1 problem in the world, because it eats our money without any regret, and the money of the stupid capitalists themselves. Ha-ha.
Is the accounting depreciation correct, according to which the depreciation period of equipment and materials is 8 years? It is known that many products and equipment work perfectly for 30 years! It turns out that depreciation is also part of the collusion of commodity producers and legislators! But most likely there is no collusion. It’s just laziness and unwillingness to look for a reason.
Then it turns out that it is very expensive to create garbage for commodity producers, consumers and the state, because these are municipal expenses for garbage removal, construction of incinerators, and ensuring their round-the-clock operation. It turns out that the problem is aggravated by the fact that in such factories we simply burn up to 50% of our GDP!!! This is a billionaire country! And all because of laziness. It turns out that burning garbage is like drowning a garbage processing plant with bundles of money!
Let’s look at the origins of this problem with examples.
Take for example a personal computer.
|Part Name||Real service life||What causes the need for replacement?||How to solve?|
|ATX system unit housing||Not limited||Case volume||Look for an analogue of a component with smaller dimensions|
|Power supply unit||50 years||Increasing the energy consumption of components||Exchange for a more powerful one or sell the old one|
|Motherboard||50 years||New components||Or maybe you can continue working on the old OS?|
|Microprocessor||50 years||Low power||Sell|
|Fan||15 years||New processor||The item is not the most expensive, but it can be sold|
|RAM||100 years||Another processor||Sell|
|Information storage device||10 years||Ran out of space, slow||Reuse by the manufacturer, especially the housing|
|Display||30 years||New format||Sell|
|Keyboard||10 years with intensive work||Key failure||Reuse by the manufacturer, especially the housing|
|Mouse||5 years with intensive work||Button failure||Reuse by the manufacturer, especially the housing|
And what is an 8K TV for at home? There’s no way to explain it at all.
Polyethylene products and plastic products are 100% recyclable. Plastics have become very expensive over the past 4 years – by 2 times! I.e. all these products are subject to 100% recycling:
– Everything made of plastic and polyethylene in your house, car, cottage, garage!
Radio components should be fully returned to the factories that create them. Therefore, radio products should be produced with a provision for quick disassembly when returning the goods to the factory.
Cars and related garbage are 100% recyclable.
Wood and sawdust products are 100% recycled.
Planes, trains, ships, submarines, oil production and oil refining, concrete, brick, glass (100% processing), metal products, ferrous metals, non-ferrous, precious, paint coatings, wallpaper, tiles, plaster, wood (100%), cardboard packaging (100%). Old books, 100% paper packaging.
Garbage in general is an indicator of the redundancy of mining, wood, water consumption, etc. There is garbage – it’s time to stop mining until the garbage is completely processed!
Garbage is similar to fat accumulations in animals and humans. If there are too many of them, it’s time to change your diet. At the moment, we see how humanity has become greedy, throwing money (50% or more of income) into the landfill.
To change the diet means to introduce regulation by the population and the state of the volume of garbage. What can I offer here:
– reduction of the range of manufactured goods,
– combining functions in one product,
– replacing not hardware in the computer, but software to get a new function, because we do not see electronic garbage in landfills.
– do not buy unnecessary and it will not be produced.
– the system is aimed at creating new needs and increasing garbage, and the consumer is to blame, who makes it clear when buying that it is necessary to increase the assortment.
– the population should regulate the production of unnecessary things without buying them.
– the annihilation of garbage must first occur in people’s heads, then its material reflection will also disappear!
Let’s summarize our article in this way.
1. All products manufactured by industry at 100%, especially agricultural products, must be recycled. And this is practically all the garbage. 50% of the garbage thrown out daily by a city dweller is packaging, i.e. 100% recyclable products: cardboard, polyethylene, aluminum, plastic, glass containers (here you should think about the unification of glass containers, which will allow you to take care of it at all).
2. The use of garbage for recycling will reduce by at least 50-75% the expenses of the population and enterprises engaged in the production of material values. Waste-processing enterprises will become unnecessary, municipal enterprises engaged in garbage collection will also become unnecessary.
3. The use of garbage will reduce the volume of mining by at least 75%! When transferring vehicles to other types of engines up to 95%!
4. The next step should be strict regulation by the state of any industrial waste, which in the future 30-50 years will have an effect in the form of a complete absence of emissions and waste in general.
The main contractor for the exclusion of garbage formation is enterprises. Produced products that have a limited service life – take it back after the expiration of the service life. Refused admission – a large fine, so that he learns to recycle garbage faster. There is no other way, because the capitalist himself will not believe until he sees the money hiding in the garbage on the basis of the annual report on the work of the enterprise that garbage is his money, and not something that should be disposed of.
