 "Eight Great Myths of Recycling” exposes the errors and falsehoods underlying much of the rhetoric in support of man-datory recycling. Daniel K. Benjamin points out that recyclinghas always been one way of dealing with waste products, butthat Americans have lost their perspective on waste disposal.

The goals of reduce, reuse and—especially—recycle have
 become the only acceptable ways of disposing of trash.  
Benjamin’s essay show why this view is based on misconcep-
tions of mythic proportions."
