Repeal "Promotion of Recycling"
While the intent of the target resolution of reducing waste in the interest of both sapient beings and the environment at large is an overall agreeable one, the repeal correctly identifies flaws both in drafting and execution which render the target unsuitable to pursuing these goals.
Specifically, the repeal points out the target’s inner inconsistency in defining the term ‘recyclable waste material’, but then not making use of that term in one of the resolution’s central mandates requiring the collection of ‘recyclable materials’. Due to this error, the otherwise reasonable and appropriate definition is not applicable, and member nations are therefore bound to implement a system for the collection of all recyclable materials, not factoring in their suitability for reprocession. This puts an unreasonable burden on member states.
Furthermore, the target requires all member nations to introduce recycling and salvaging systems. This does not take into account the possibility of member nations working together in these fields, and discourages cooperation in recycling and trade in recyclable waste materials and salvageable objects, both of which would be at least as effective in achieving the target’s goal of waste reduction, if not more effective when taking into account the possible cooperation between technologically more advanced member states with less advanced nations.
Overall, while the target’s aim is an important one, the target falls short in effectively achieving it. A repeal would allow for more effective and comprehensive regulation on the subject, to the benefit of both member nations and the environment. Therefore, we recommend a vote for the repeal.
Why was I tagged?!
Current policy emerged from the poll conducted here, which showed a majority supporting telegrams disseminating these messages to all residents. Internally, however, the Office compromised between telegrams – which many in the region might find spammy, due to the default limitations of telegram mailboxes – and oft-ignored RMB messages.
