Hi there,

I am a developer, and while in principle, I agree with the spirit of what you are saying, from my side there are a lot of issues with what you propose, and I think there are better policy changes that could be made that would accomplish preservation and the reduction of waste, while at the same time, not exaccerbating our housing crisis. I'd be interested in discussing it further if you want to shoot me an email. I'd also like to hear more about building recycling programs - specifically the ones in the Netherlands you mention.
