I'm gonna ask a question that I really don't know the answer to, so don't jump down my throat 'k?

I know that recycling aluminum is cheaper and more efficient than mining more. But is it really cheaper and more efficient for glass and paper? Has this been proven and if so, where and when?

Not be mandatory, but most people cannot recycle because the means are not available. If the means are there how big of a trouble is it drop the trash in different bins.

In the Seattle area we have garbage, recycling, and compostables. There is a fine for putting the the wrong one in the garbage. The court has ruled they can't look in opaque bags. So use those and no problem.

@dryanmore: the point is to realize that we don't, by-and-large, dispose of our own garbage in a bubble. We rely on systems, rules, and efficiencies (occurring unbeknownst to us) to carry them out, day in and day out. The rules that govern them are up to those responsible and there are rules for the end-user aa well who benefits from that system. Its also a rule to use a garbage bag even though that's not exactly needed to get the trash out of the house. We just dont look at it that way because we are so use to it by now.

All the garbage men I see are residents of my borough, generationally local folks, who happen to be garbage men. And do speak english. From time to time to time, I hear of someone getting a fine, but typically that does not happen because most people can muster the extra 5 seconds of energy and time daily to do their part. Not something we think to be upset about. Just part of our routine.

So if recycling was mandatory the service provider would monitor the receptacle assigned to your address and report to the city if you are not compliant. Any trash issues, as always, that anyone complains about, are handled as well through the city. Even if additional pick ups that are required can be charged to your address. There will always be a way to fine you.

No, it should be single-stream. Incentivize more cities and disposal companies to provide single stream instead of incentivizing or mandating individual consumers, and you wind up with smarter, more efficient recycling without the storage and transportation issues of individual recycling.

Well my brain is right where I left it, between my ears. To recycle is not my choice but local and state government. They need to supply the bins, drop points, repurposing plants, etc. It use to be you could return bottles for and get a nickel. Weren't many bottles littering the countryside then. So, cities like Orlando for example, have a great recycle program. In rural America, not so easy and can be expensive to drive to a site. So more carbon versus more recycled stuff? Interesting choice. 🕵

No a lot of people didn't get educated on what's recyclable growing up its not there fault and also just educate future generations on what is recycling and what is recyclable

Or maybe you should educate yourself about single-stream recycling. There are other, better choices than yes or no.

Exactly. Or dump it somewhere - that happens a lot in rural areas.

I'm glad someone here knew that! Environmentalism has become a religion and individual recycling is one of its holy rites.

If you live next to a garbage dump you should be exempt. Everyone else should have to recycle so we all don't have to live next to a dump.

We don't have to recycle now and most of us do not live next to a dump.

Lol. The trashiest cities are run by liberals. Detroit and flint are prime examples where the liberals made the entire cities dumps.

Correction, Flint is run by a Republican governor appointed city manager. The democratically elected city council has no power. It was taken away by the Governor.

The governor had to take over because the liberals screwed the city up so bad which is what liberals do. What's your excuse for Detroit? Do you blame the 5% of non liberals for their problems too?

Only recently, like within the last year, did Flint become Republican-administered. Republicans are good, but we're not miracle workers. It'll take at least a couple more years to reverse several decades of corrupt, inefficient, inept Democratic incompetency.

Go to San Francisco and tell me its trashy. It has one of the strictest recycling laws in the nation and its one of the cleanest cities.

Lol. I have been to San Francisco and there were bums everywhere and the place smells like urine and feces.

Yeah Think4, running a city with 4 million people is EXACTLY the same as running a town of 10,000. Simpleton.

Prevent recyclable trash from going to trash heaps, takes away need to get more resources for production, so yes

Right! Recycling makes sense for certain areas, like Hawaii, but most people have a LARGER carbon footprint if they recycle.

Aside from "help the environment" being a totally meaningless phrase, only non-alloy metals and some types of glass can be recycled as or more effectively that they can be manufactured from raw materials. For everything else such as plastic, alloys, and especially paper products, recycling is a total waste of resources.

Would you mind separating it by density and chunkiness? And don't forget to wash and compost the undigested corn.
That would really help the water treatment plant to achieve their new "green directives."
