STEP UP EFFORTS TO RECYCLE GOODS

SHARE STEP UP EFFORTS TO RECYCLE GOODS

In my own area, it is my concern that there isn't enough being done to try to recycle recyclable items conveniently. Sure, we do have some recycling going on, but it is only for newspapers, and there are no facilities to recycle plastic or other such items. I think there can still be a lot done to recycle everything.

A typical scenario might be: You have just printed a 20-page research paper when you notice that your printer was off-centered, and so you need to print it over again. So what happens to those 20 pages? They immediately get a one-way ticket to the trash can, and from the trash can they go to the dump.This isn't just a problem in my area, but it is also a statewide concern. With the ever-decreasing amount of space we have for landfills, we need to set up a recycling system. It might cost a lot of money to set it up, but once it gets going, we will have an increase in landfill space, a decrease in the amount of money we need to spend on landfills, plus we will be conserving trees and helping the environment.
