Mandatory recycling should be on the top of President Obama’s list when he prepares to deal with the environment. But until then, Salt Lake City, Ut., has beat him to the punch. They are trying to implement a mandatory recycling day in their neighborhoods. Some neighbors are grumbling, some neighbors thinks its good. And of course we all know why the grumbles…money.
The rate that they want people to pay for the recycling program is small. They want people to pay a whopping $4.75 per month. Cheap right? You get a big blue recycle can and everything. If every state did that, we would see our landfills disappear and our quality of life increase. Go to your congressman and demand your blue can today!
