Is pressure sensitive label stock recyclable?

User Avatar
It depends on what kind of PS label stock you have. The adhesive is more likely to be recyclable is it is emulsion based. Solvent based adhesives and some hot melts are petrochemical based and are not really good candidates for recycling Likewise, the more permanent label stocks (PVC, polyester, poly pro, etc.) are also petrochemical. Further, it is extremely unlikely that any recycler would be interested in trying to separate the base stock from the adhesive from the silicon in the release liner and the release liner itself.

Asked in Baseball History, Wales, New South Wales

Did baseball originate in South Wales in the UK?

User Avatar
"The game of Rounders has been played in England since Tudor Times, with the earliest reference being in 1744 in "A Little Pretty Pocketbook" where it is called Baseball. It is a striking and fielding team game, which involves hitting a small hard leather cased ball with a round wooden or metal bat and then running around 4 bases in order to score" Source: http://www.nra-rounders.co.UK/dyncat.cfm?catid=17177 So it appears that it was England as opposed to Wales where Baseball was invented. The British invented baseball as inactive children in England needed some mild exercise so the game was created as a result. In Commonwealth nations its played by many kids up to age 11.. while its very popular as a girls game with UK having organised nationwide Leagues. Baseball/Rounders the British (England) invented as an activity for unfit small kids, pitch, bat and run around 4 bases. 200 + years later its still very popular today among British kids up to 5th Grade.. girls have formalised competitions. I have checked and its popular among this age group in Cardiff and Swansea, South Wales. Reference..Baseball comes from Britain... http://inventors.about.com/library/inventors/blbaseball.htm **People ask with Spalding guide of America in 1887 naming it 'World championship Series' attempting to entice other countries to play it of which it states Australia and Great Britain... why they don't play it, a major reason for this is the British invented Baseball aka Rounders and its historically been for children for whom it was intended.

Any locality situated on a coastline is, theoretically, able to be affected by tsunamis. The NSW coast could easily be affected by a tsunami generated by seismic activity in New Zealand.

In what year was Queensland formed from New South Wales?

User Avatar
The settlement of Moreton Bay was separated from New South Wales and established as a new Colony named Queensland (for Queen Victoria) in 1859. On 10 September 1825, the settlement was given the name of Brisbane, and no longer called the Moreton Bay colony, but it was still part of the New South Wales territory. This act was done in opposition to the wishes of the New South Wales Governor, but the British government decided in favour of a petition from the people of Brisbane and that it would be better done now, than later. In 1859, Queen Victoria signed Letters Patent, which declared that Queensland was now a separate colony from New South Wales. On 6 June 1859, the former Moreton Bay District was granted separation from New South Wales, and given the name of Queensland, with Brisbane as its capital city. The first Governor was Sir George Ferguson Bowen.

Why is Wagga Wagga getting flooded?

User Avatar
Wagga Wagga is located in the Murrumbidgee Flats, and the Murrumbidgee River has always been prone to flooding. Excessive rain and the effects of the current La Nina weather pattern have contributed to excessive water heights.

Does spatial inequality exist in Sydney?

User Avatar
Spatial Inequality in Sydney Yes, it does. Areas in and around Sydney are beginning to feel the effects of special inequality. As the population grows, the effects are becoming more prevalent, especially infrastructure accessibility to people in poorer areas. Suburban pockets of poverty can be found on the city's fringes, in certain parts of Sydney's south-west for example, and there are also pockets of poverty in much more central areas. The less-affluent areas are generally higher in unemployment, welfare-dependency, single-parent families, substance abuse and crime, than other Sydney suburbs. These are also often the areas in which overseas migrants and refugees chose to settle, because the real estate is much cheaper and the ethnic and racial composition is generally more diverse.
