First up is Derek Angove, Director of Processing and Resource Management for the city of Toronto talking about how our recycling programs works. Derek and Daryn discuss some common misconceptions about the program including misunderstandings about what can and can’t be recycled, what recycling actually means and some new additions to the program and finally the role of the program in the cities overall budget.

In the second half, Journalist Krystyna Henke speaks with American author and sociologist Charles Derber. He has a new book out, The Disinherited Majority. Building on the recent work of French economist Thomas Piketty, Derber makes a case for re-examining capitalism in the face of widening global inequity and ecological destruction. An activist himself, Derber encourages people to take individual and collective action.
