The landfills running out of room and they cover all the trash with dirt. As said by Shark State College, “ No one wants to live next door to a landfill.” The smell on a hot summer day by a landfill is just unbearable. Before we know it we will be living on top of trash. There will be trash running out on the street and sticking up out of the ground.Trash is getting harder to get rid of every day. The trash that is just being put in the ground is just adding more stuff to the ground that will be harder to dig up later and get rid of. This problem could be hard to fix if we don’t get it under control right now.This problem will probably never will be fixed.

    There is only a limited amount of space to make landfills and even though we have a lot of that space now we might not have that same space a few years from now. If we start recycling now before we have no more space it will save a lot of unneeded stress for everyone. Also the space that people reserve for landfills could be used in a more productive way that could benefit to our societies. Another reason people say that we should not have mandatory recycling is that it will save people time to just throw their trash away. It really doesn’t take that much time to put you plastic bottles inside the recycling bin and on trash day take it out to your front yard with your regular trash.…

While it is true that recycling has its advantages, not everyone takes the time to perform the task. As David Steiner, chief executive of Waste Management in Maryland, puts it, “If people felt that recycling is important, they would already be doing it,” (Davis 1). In this case, Steiner’s statement augments the idea that laziness is holding people back from recycling. People do not want to take the time to go out and recycle.…

People may say that these forms of energy are too expensive, but this is wrong if you look at the big picture. Solar and wind energy are definitely more expensive in the beginning, but the savings that are created over many years actually end up less costly.…
