Recycling or Scrap?

Although the idea of recycling motor cars is a good idea, local residents and businesses have expressed concern over the environmental impact of the First Step Trust's innovative £2m scheme planned for Irlam. There must be a phrase for this particular kind of NIMBYism - 'yeah, we know I'm all for recycling, but do they have do it here. Surely all these cars can be shipped off to the Mongolian desert by the Chinese'. Then again phrases such as Approved Treatment Centre, oil, gas, brake fluid, hydraulics removal etc does suggest that this is a just a scrap yard for liberal minded car drivers wracked with guilt over their size nine carbon footprints.
