    Recycling Landfills

    • 801 Words
    • 4 Pages

    Problem: Recycling is an over popularized issue that is often pushed to the side. For example, the city of Granbury does not provide, require, or promote recycling in any way. The city treats recycling as an option and not a necessity. In 2009, the United States produced enough trash to fill landfills with the weight of “88 million cars”. 161 million tons of this trash was “recyclable materials” that were later recovered. Each year numerous amounts of paper, bottles, electronics, aluminum, steel, and glass are thrown away instead of recycled. Every time an item is placed into the trash that could be recycled, a chance to save money and reduce landfills is wasted. Without recycling we produce endless amounts of trash and debris. Landfills are dirty unappealing eye sores that produce toxins and pollute the environment. The United States alone has 13,000 landfills. 10,000 of…

    Recycling In California

    • 2 Pages

    Furthermore, Californians tend to wonder why they should recycle. They probably are familiar with the term “recycling”, but perhaps do not know what to recycle. A report released by IPSOS observed that only 50% of the whole American population recycles on a daily basis as more than 10% of Americans completely not involved in recycling practices (Ali). Therefore, there should be a priority to seek to bridge the existing knowledge gap. For instance, recycling involves reusing waste materials or…

    Some states are already creating strict laws. Rhode Island has created a law that says 80% of packaging that businesses use must be recycled (In the Bin). I think that sets a good example for the other countries and we should have similar laws. The only measly law that Missouri has is “It is illegal to discard a motor vehicle battery of other lead-acid battery” (recycling Laws Map). This is a step in the right direction, but it still is not good enough. We need better and stricter laws, and…

    The misconception of recycling is, does it really work? When you take out your trash, do you take the time to put the paper with the paper, the glass with the glass?
