    To me, the best way to mitigate the majority of the waste, is not to allow folks to build in these disaster prone areas or mandate disaster resistant building structures. JM2C

    "post disaster cleanup" seems to imply there are lots of people left to do the cleaning up after a disaster, post SHTF this wont necessarily be the case.

    Good morning Lonewolf,

    So true.

    Plus, it's not really a few neighbors with garden rakes wearing rubber boots (Wellingtons).

    The dead must be buried and those doing this task must be disinfected.

    Flooded areas are usually infected areas.

    Foods in refrigerators must be disposed of - more digging ? more burning ? Probably not.

    in a major event where there are lots of dead bodies mass burial pits will be required, burning a human body takes too much wood.
    a JCB/backhoe will do the main digging, if one can be found and it has enough fuel that is.

    Good morning Lone Wolf,

    I just went over to our MSF CP tent. On the clipboard below the last entry "horse shoe nails - to save kingdom", I added to list:

    "backhoes, fuel".

    We're not set up for all this.

    bought some more boxes of screws today to add to the ones I bought last week to add to my stockpile of screws.

    ROFL !

    Lone Wolf, my sides are splitting !

    I am self-sufficient less the insect-borne infectious diseases and related.

    My place is loaded with field emergency repair kits - but once the mosquitoes tour the dead animals and humans - it's just about all over, with 11 aircraft carriers or 22.

    We're not set up even though the place is far from being an impoverished land.

    your posts make me smile, even if some of them don't make sense to an Englishman.

    Good morning Lonewolf,

    Horseshoe nails to wood screws for repair are good items coupled to the good efforts to prepare.

    Who here doesn't have all sorts of emergency kits for all sorts of emergencies ?!

    Epidemics and the all-encompassing pandemics will get us all well prior to running out of drinking water from our RO system.
    Think : mosquitoes.

    pandemics will hit the cities because of the numbers involved.
    mosquitoes would favour stagnant water pools.

    Good morning LW,

    Yes, the cities will become test tubes of deadly diseases.

    Here in the country we also have the animal/ livestock problem. If the animals are not attended to and die, it's an approximation to a pool of stagnant water.

    This matter is currently being addressed in Virginia but probably will take ages to have a program in place.

    dairy cows will die in the fields here if they aren't milked.
    beef cows and sheep are good escape artists and if there isn't enough grass in the paddock they will break out and go looking for more.
    any post disaster programme-even if there is one- will be limited here due to the large distance from the capital, especially if the fuel has run out and the power is off.
