Landfill Becomes Nature Park
 
01:11
A landfill becomes a nature park. The Mucking Landfill in Essex, England was one of the largest trash dumps in Europe. For 50 years, trash from London was shipped down the River Thames to the 845 acre Essex landfill, creating a layer of waste 80 feet deep. Now, after a project costing around 3.8 million dollars, part of it has been turned into a nature preserve for rare wild flowers and wildlife. The location has been turned into a nature park, where all kinds of wildlife can be found thanks to the Essex Wildlife Trust. Several species of birds have been observed in the area, along with harvest mice, newts, orchids and adders to name a few. Sir David Attenborough, president emeritus of The Wildlife Trusts said that the "project is visionary and one of many remarkable projects led by The Wildlife Trusts around the UK that bring benefits to the natural world and communities." Another landfill in Grimsby, England is going to be transformed into a 17 acre park and the location of 250 prospective homes. The site in Grimsby has not been used for anything since the 1970s.

Transformed   Notorious NY Landfill to Recreation Mecca
 
01:35
Teaching Moment: A notorious landfill is transformed into a recreational playground - We had to run this story. It's about a landfill that operated for 54 years, as the repository for what is estimated to be 150 million tons of New York City trash. Maybe it's a story of redemption, where an eyesore three times the size of Central Park could be turned into a place where New Yorkers will be able to escape the concrete jungle to hike, canoe, kayak, bike, and ride horses (RIDE HORSES!) in a natural setting. The kicker with this story is that the methane from garbage rotting underground will be collected and sold to heat Staten Island homes, with the proceeds going to New York City. I love this story.

Managing wastewater in a water sensitive city - full resource recovery .
 
07:43
A waste-water treatment plant , cleverly designed can take the sewage from a city and convert it to a resource. Sludge from this WWTP for instance is a very good fertilizer for farmers around the city . The treated waste-water now goes to a wetland and further purifies it. This fills up a large 50 Hectare spread lake. The lake is full of fishes and between a 100 to 200 kg of fish are harvested daily. Birds fill the wetlands and the lake and therefore it becomes a bio-diversity spot. The water in the lake recharges and raises the groundwater all around. Old open wells are full of water. This water is potable except for some basic treatment such as an online sand filter and an online chlorinator. Sewage has been converted to pure water using natures services and with resource recovery at all stages. A water sensitive city would allow all such play and integrate it into its overall water management plan.There is much that can be achieved if attention is paid, right insitutions and incentives created and accountability demanded.

NOTE: If you need captions, please click the CC button on the player to turn them on. Martin Schwartz is a Special Agent for the U.S. Environmental Protection Agency and has served as its National Use of Force Coordinator since 2001. Martin became interested in a career in law enforcement when serving in the U.S. Air Force in Kosovo as part of a United Nations Police Mission. Upon leaving the Air Force, Martin was a police officer in New Jersey for 25 years. Martin is particularly pleased that, as the National Coordinator, he can apply the skills that he has learned over the years to train every EPA Special Agent in the appropriate use of force. EPA's special agents are responsible for investigating allegations of environmental crime and assisting the Department of Justice in building and prosecuting successful criminal cases involving the most egregious violations of environmental statutes, thus deterring future crimes. They are federal law enforcement officers with complete statutory authority to conduct investigations, carry firearms, make arrests for any federal crime, and execute and serve warrants.

Human NO TIP Message - 7 News
 
01:39
The Ross Trust and Peninsula Waste Management want to turn the old Pioneer quarry on the side of Arthurs Seat into a putrid dumping ground. The site was once an open cut granite mine but has since been reclaimed by nature and become a beautiful pristine place, with a stunning lake surrounded by bush that is home to many native plants and wildlife. It is in an environmentally valuable area in between two state parks and this proposal poses not only a massive health risk to Peninsula residents and the environment, but also threatens our thriving tourism industry and many local businesses. The planning application for a tip in the quarry states that it will take all rubbish including asbestos and will not have any recycling capability. The Mornington Peninsula Shire Council were supposed to oversee the conversion of the site into a lake with walking tracks and picnic areas for the residents of the Mornington Peninsula and it's visitors, but instead, we're now staring down the barrel of an absolute disaster. On Sunday 25th August 2013, roughly 1000 members of the Mornington Peninsula Community formed a huge human NO TIP sign which was filmed and photographed from the air. The community wanted to demonstrate their anger after an EPA Conference failed to answer their questions and concerns about the tip proposal. The message was filmed at the Hillview Reserve, Boundary Road, Dromana near to the Old Pioneer Quarry which the Ross Trust owns. There were speakers from the community opposing the tip including Peninsula Preservation Group Inc. Mary Karamitsios from PPG said "The Ross Trust continues to push on with this application even though it has been demonstrated to them that the tip is not wanted or needed by anyone. "There are other safer, viable alternatives." Dr Mark Fancett, Vice President of PPG pointed out that there is compelling scientific evidence that states that fire risk of this tip is magnified as this site is surrounded by bush land rated among the Shire's highest bushfire risk areas. "Litter, gas emissions, land and groundwater contamination would gravely affect the water table, Sheepwash Creek and the Bay and flora and fauna, some of them on the endangered list". Rosalie White, owner of Mainridge Estate winery, representing the local vignerons said a bush fire starting in the proposed rubbish tip could devastate the peninsula's $60 million a year wine industry. The Greens Sue Pennicuik MLC and local candidate Dr Martin Rush also spoke out against the tip. The Ross Trust has so far barely responded to community concerns and the community wants to know why the Mornington Peninsula Shire failed to provide accessible information to the community about viable alternative waste management options. For further information visit http://www.savearthursseat.com/ So far, over 20,000 people have signed petitions opposing the tip. To add your name to the list of objectors, go to http://www.communityrun.org/petitions/save-arthurs-seat?source=facebook-share-button&time=1367288058

Greenstream Flooring CIC - a Wales Co-operative Centre case study
 
05:03
Greenstream Flooring CIC (Community Interest Company) was established in 2008 and is currently based in Porth, Rhondda Cynon Taf. Its vision is to 'provide the best service and price for the recovery and sales of carpet tiles in the UK in order to maximise benefit to the community'. The business was originally housed by fellow social enterprise Too Good To Waste (furniture recycling), in Ferndale, and moved to its current site in Porth in July 2010. The move has enabled Greenstream Flooring to sell direct to the general public, while allowing the company to carry larger stock levels, giving greater capacity to target markets that have potential, including housing associations, property agents, clubs and landlords. The business offers training and employment opportunities to local people, who are generally disadvantaged in the jobs market. This includes disabled people, with referrals coming from Job Centre Plus and work programmes. Volunteers and placements help with work in the main warehouse, with the floor fitting and also in the office. Its other 'social output' is the provision of affordable flooring to people who would otherwise struggle to carpet their homes. This work has helped people in temporary housing and those who have been re-housed from hostels. Three and a half million carpet tiles are disposed of, to landfill, every year in South Wales and the South West, the vast majority of which are sent there unnecessarily. Greenstream Flooring CIC (previously known as Cleanstream Carpets) saves carpet tiles from landfill and, through a process of being hand-sorted, sells them at low prices. Greenstream Flooring CIC is also a social enterprise and this process is not purely profit driven but also driven by environmental and social issues. The Wales Co-operative Centre has provided ongoing business support to Greenstream Flooring, through its expansion and site move. The Centre has also provided marketing support, help with business planning, legal support, financial planning (all through the Social Enterprise Support Project) and an ICT review from Communities 2.0, to help the business explore how it could make better use of digital technologies. The social enterprise is now selling online, through its website (http://www.findcarpettiles.co.uk/) and eBay. Managing Director, Ellen Petts, has told us that she also attends the Social Enterprise Networks Wales events that the Centre has organised, while using the LinkedIn group that complements the meetings.
