It is a known fact that plastic bags are a huge problem for rubbish removalcompanies. Because of the environmental problems they create, consumers of almost all the Western countries are gradually shifting to safer and more eco-friendly alternatives. One of the best alternatives for plastic bags is the traditional jute bag. Bangladesh is one of the major countries that produce a lot of these traditional jute bags and so, this industry in that country is thriving.
Jute used to be known as the "golden fiber" of the British Empire. Prior to 1947, this once-glorious Empire, that used to boast that "the Sun never sets in the British Empire", was ruling Bangladesh, a part of the Indian Sub-Continent. Jute bags are made of the coarse threads that are spun from jute fiber. But, unfortunately, jute industry started declining in the 1980's after the advent of the synthetic fiber. Now, since the Western customers are shunning plastic bags, the jute industry is getting revived.
In 2010, Bangladesh saw a phenomenal increase in the export of jute. There was a 70 per cent increase in exports of jute goods in 2010 alone! Jute fiber was the second largest export item of the country in 2010, next only to garments. Millions of eco-friendly jute bags are being exported to Western nations. But, these foreign nations are highly quality-conscious and therefore, the jute industry in Bangladesh is making sure to offer them the finest bags made of high-quality jute fiber. This has been confirmed by Asma Mohabub Moni, a 29-year old jute producer of Bangladesh. According to her, not only the Western nations, even Japan is fast shifting to jute bags instead of plastic bags. So, Bangladesh is exporting heavily to Japan also.
If you study the features of jute cloth, that is also known as hessian in Europe and burlap in North America, it is eco-friendly and bio-degradable. Even the production process of jute cloth is environment-friendly. If you compare jute cloth with synthetic cloth, jute cloth has more versatility than its synthetic counterpart. It is cheaper also. With these positive features, jute cloth has become the natural choice for many countries. For this reason, jute bags are a highly effective, and a popular alternative to plastic bags, which are a nightmare for companies that are involved with rubbish removals.
Bangladesh was among the first countries to ban plastic bags in the year 2002. Perhaps, this was not only due to the fact that waste removal became a problem with all the plastic bags, but also because they had an excellent alternative in jute bags. China did it in 2008 and now, the State of California has joined the bandwagon by banning plastic bags in pharmacies, groceries and convenience stores. The Indian government is also trying to ban plastic bags completely but they have limitations due to the federalized system of governance. But, a few states and cities of India have already banned plastic bags because rubbish removal is a major problem in India. In Europe, shops that use plastic bags are heavily fined. For every plastic bag used by these shops, a levy will be imposed.
There are about four million farmers who cultivate and produce jute in Bangladesh and the latest trend is great news for them. Since the demand for the eco-friendly jute bags is likely to increase exponentially in the coming years, Bangladesh jute industries are expanding their work force. For the last six years, there is an increased focus on improvement of infrastructure also to facilitate growth of this industry.
Further good news for jute farmers and manufacturers of Bangladesh is that the Western importers are now choosing "fair trade" products and following "fair trade" practices and therefore, these exporters are being paid a good price for their exports. In fact, the incomes of jute farmers have also increased by about five times in the recent years. So, many farmers are switching to jute cultivation and they make all possible efforts to grow high-quality jute. They have started adopting modern methods for improving the yield also.
More and more nations are imposing bans on plastic bags and are switching to more eco-friendly alternatives like jute bags. This news is certain to bring cheer in the rubbish removal industry, and those concerned about the environment and sustainable living.

It is estimated that around 18 million waste tyres (measured in equivalent passenger units) are generated in Australia each year.1 The disposal of used tyres at waste depots can cause problems and therefore requires specialised methods of disposal.
The disposal of whole waste tyres at waste depots in South Australia was generally prohibited through EPA license conditions in 1992 for metropolitan waste depots, and in 1995 for all country waste depots. The Environment Protection (Waste to Resources) Policy 2010, which became operational from 1 September 2010, formally bans whole tyres from being disposed to landfill. Waste tyres occupy large volumes of landfill space. They do not readily compact and can flex back to the surface after burial.
If tyres are stored in large quantities they can present a fire hazard, or can harbour disease vectors such as mosquitoes and vermin. The Environment Protection Authority (EPA) is committed to ensuring that tyres are stored, transported and disposed of in a manner that minimises their negative effects on the environment.
Should waste tyres be unsuitable for recycling or other uses, they can be shredded into pieces not larger than 250 mm in any direction and can be deposited at a waste depot licensed to dispose of shredded waste tyres. The waste levy applies to tyres disposed of at landfills.
Environmental and health risks
The risk of fire has been demonstrated with a number of tyre fires that have occurred in South Australia. The intense radiant heat can cause damage to neighbouring properties and inhibit fire-fighting efforts, and the incomplete combustion of tyres can cause a health risk through the inhalation of particulates. Tyre fires are very difficult to extinguish and are dangerous to firefighters. Environmental impacts to soil, watercourses and stormwater are likely, and clean-up costs can be extremely high.
Tyres stockpiled in the open provide an ideal habitat for vermin and mosquitoes. Mosquitoes are attracted to the rainwater that builds up in the wells of the tyres, and to the warm, dark environment; a single tyre can nurture hundreds of larvae. Diseases associated with mosquitoes include dengue fever and Ross River virus.
Tyres are approximately 60% hydrocarbon, and have a higher calorific value than fuel sources such as wood, coke and brown coal. It is therefore more desirable to recycle tyres, as this energy cannot be recovered from tyres buried with other wastes.
Under the Environment Protection Act 1993 (the Act), an environmental authorisation (works approval, licence or exemption) is required for the reception, storage, treatment or disposal of waste, other than in certain circumstances. In the case of waste tyres or tyre pieces an environmental authorisation is not required if:
the tyres are handled solely for recycling or reuse and are not in quantities exceeding five (5) tonnes per year (approximately 500 passenger vehicle tyres)
the EPA is satisfied that the waste or recycling depot will be conducted for such limited purposes that requiring an environmental authorisation would not be justified.
Transporting waste tyres
Under the Act, an environmental authorisation is required to transport solid waste—including tyres— if transported for fee or reward. Licensed waste transporters must complete a waste tracking form (supplied by the EPA) identifying where tyres are collected and where they are taken. The form must be completed by the producer of the waste (in most cases the retailer), the licensed transporter and the licensed waste depot operator (the disposal operator).
Licensed transporters must take waste tyres to a waste or recycling depot licensed by the EPA, or to an unlicensed waste or recycling depot that can receive the tyres under exempted circumstances described above (refer licence requirements).
The transport of waste tyres interstate is subject to the National Environment Protection (Movement of Controlled Waste between States and Territories) Measure and requires approval from the environmental regulatory authority in the state or territory of destination. The EPA should be contacted for further information before waste tyres are transported out of South Australia.
Recycling options for waste tyres Retreading
The best use for used tyres is retreading, provided that the casings are of good quality and meet Australian safety standards. A number of retreaders operate in South Australia, and approximately 30% of all waste tyres are retreaded. Retreads are now widely considered safe for general use; the transport industry is a major user of retreaded tyres.
Rubber crumb is produced by buffing the tyre during the retreading process, or by a number of other technologies used in tyre disposal, including cryogenics and shredding.
The rubber crumb can be used for the production of:
athletic field surfaces
rubberised bitumen and asphalt
moulded and extruded rubber products
Tyre derived fuel
Subject to approval by the EPA, tyres can be used as a fuel substitute through burning in high temperature, purpose-built furnaces for:
Processes that use tyres as a fuel substitute must meet statutory air quality requirements for emissions.
Other reuse options for waste tyres Tyres for use in arenas or as barriers
Waste tyres have been used as walls for horse arenas, motor sport protection barriers and retaining walls. Council approval should be sought before seeking approval from the EPA. In any case, for those properties taking more than five tonnes of used motor vehicle tyres, an environmental authorisation from the EPA is required. In some circumstances, the EPA may be satisfied that an environmental authorisation is not required (refer licence requirements).
There has been some use of tyres as a base for landscaping in raised garden beds and cascading rock gardens. Comment should be sought from the local council regarding development approval before commencing work.
