Mike Biddle: Why plastic is still 'the last frontier' of recycling 26.2.2014 Guardian: Environment
The former CEO discusses his frustration with the recycling movement, his hatred of waste and how the US can grow jobs This month, Mike Biddle, the founder and longtime CEO of a pioneering plastics-recycling company called MBA Polymers , stepped down as an executive at the firm, ending more than two decades of unrelenting effort to reduce plastic waste. Biddle's story is one of great success, as well as ongoing frustration. He sat down with me last week at the 2014 GreenBiz Forum in Phoenix to talk about MBA Polymers, the potential of the so-called circular economy, and why, despite all we know, the vast majority of plastics discarded in the US still wind up in incinerators, landfills or, worse, the ocean. Plastics, he says, remains "the last frontier of recycling." Biddle, who is 58 and has a PhD in chemical engineering from Case Western and an MBA from Stanford, left a good job at Dow Chemical in 1992 in the hope of solving the difficult puzzle of plastics recycling. During the next ...

Panel advances bill targeting med-waste incinerators 22.2.2014 Salt Lake Tribune
A proposed ban on building waste incinerators near homes cleared a Senate committee without opposition Friday. SB196, sponsored by Sen. Todd Weiler, R-Woods Cross, targets the burning of certain types of medical waste, a practice that stirred controversy in his Davis County district last year after state regulators cracked down on a Stericyle plant for alleged emission violations. When the facility was permitted in 1989, the location was surrounded by open fields zoned for industrial uses. But i...

Utah House panel greenlights Stericycle move 20.2.2014 Salt Lake Tribune
Legislation necessary to enable medical waste handler Stericycle to relocate its incinerating operations to Tooele County cleared a House committee Wednesday with broad support. Rep. Greg Hughes, R-Draper, is carrying HJR6 to help resolve an expanding battle over waste burning in what has become the school-filled North Salt Lake neighborhood of Foxboro. “This is a great win for everyone involved,” Hughes said. Stericycle critics, however, contend incineration no longer has a place in waste mana...

Utah Senate rejects new teeth for air quality rules 15.2.2014 Salt Lake Tribune
A Senate panel on Friday shot down a bill that would have banned medical waste incineration within five miles of homes and added other teeth to Utah’s air quality regulations. SB64 would have increased fines, which haven’t been adjusted since 1991, and pushed back the statute of limitations (or filing deadlines) on air quality violations from five to 10 years. “We have limited resources and inspectors; sometimes it’s not possible to catch violators in the previous time limit,” sponsor Sen. Luz R...

Stericycle critics rally at Utah guv’s office 14.2.2014 Salt Lake Tribune
Activists and concerned residents rallied at the office of Gov. Gary Herbert Thursday, asking the state to fine medical incinerator Stericycle, shut it down and reject its proposal to move to state lands in Tooele County. The Utah Division of Air Quality alleges the North Salt Lake incinerator’s emissions have breached the limits set in its permit, which allows it to release up to 9.5 tons each year of hazardous pollutants, including mercury and lead. The Illinois-based company is contesting t...

Elevated cancer rates found near Stericycle in Davis County 12.2.2014 Salt Lake Tribune
There are elevated rates of some types of cancer in areas of the five Davis County cities that surround the Stericycle medical waste incinerator, the Utah Department of Health has found. But health officials said the findings are not cause for alarm and may simply reflect random variation that epidemiologists often encounter. The study cannot link the cancer patterns to any specific environmental exposures. The study looked at rates of 42 types of cancer over six periods of six years between 197...

Editorial: State should close Stericycle, not rescue it 3.2.2014 Salt Lake Tribune
The medical waste incinerator in North Salt Lake had the misfortune of finding itself slowly surrounded by a neighborhood, resided in by neighbors who were understandably bothered by the stuff that poured out of the smokestacks on good days, enraged by what leaked out on the many occasions when the plant exceeded its permitted limits. Now Stericycle, the company that owns the plant, is doing a deal with a state agency that would see the hazardous waste operation move to the other side of the Gr...
