A Law on Recycling

By: Justin B. Allen

A Law on Recycling

A law on recycling would be coordinated in a simple way. Each house hold or buisness's garbage would be evualuated during each pick up day. A crew would evaluate both regular waste bin and recycling bin, recording how much recyclable material is either in the right or wrong place. If a household or buisness breaches a certain amount of materials that is in the wrong bin, than that amount would be entered into a formula. The outcome of that formula would be translated into dollar value, which would be issued to the buisness owner or home owner in a form of a citation. The individual responsible would then handle that transaction the same way traffic citations are handled. Fines and penalties would vary per individual. This would create jobs as well.


Recycling, Materials That Can be Reused

Recycling simply just means reusing something, a resource. This is common knowledge. It is the act of disposing materials such as plastic, glass ware, cardboard, paper, a variety of woods, and any type of metal, seperate from other waste so that those materials can be prosessed and reused again in the future.

Reason for Regualtion

In just the past 120 years, over two million tons of non-biodigradable material has been manufactured, produced, sold, and disposed of improperly. This would not be an issue if every individual consuming those goods, recycled them as well. The public is regularly encouraged to recycle but not all people do. Producing a law and regulating the issue is the only truely effective way of resolving the matter.


Awareness

People are not often aware of the damage being done to the planet when certain materials are not disposed of properly. These materials eventually end up in land fills, places where large amounts of waste is burried. Having limmited space for these land fills materials slowly pile up, hundred or thousands of years to break down, destroying vegetation and soil. Something as simple as recycling can allow those materials to be reused for the future instead of going to waste.
