Not Quite Zero Waste

The Olympic Games organizers have set a goal of zero waste for the games.  Apparently they are achieving this through incineration - burning some of the waste generated.

You would think that they would also make an effort to eliminate disposable products as much as possible.  Apparently not.  An article about the German team reports that athletes are eating off paper plates and using plastic cutlery in the Whistler Athlete's village.
