Recycling Should Be Mandatory
Transcript of Recycling Should Be Mandatory
Statement Fact Fact Two Recycling Should Be Mandatory San Francisco (cc) photo by Metro Centric on Flickr (cc) photo by Franco Folini on Flickr (cc) photo by Metro Centric on Flickr I think that
for everyone in
every city. Point of View Problem The problem is not recycling itself, but
actually the lack of recycling. Plastics,
paper, cardboard, aluminum, and glass
are all items that can be recycled. People
throw materials away and the materials
end up in a large, disgusting landfill. That
is why we reuse what we can and try to
avoid landfills. But some people still don't
get it. That is the reason recycling needs to
become mandatory. I think that ignoring recycling is a horrible
thing to nature. Even if you are just
tossing a soda can into a recycling bin, it
still counts. Throwing items not suitable
to recycle into a recycling bin also harms nature and makes the job of workers that
run recycling companies harder. One Every year, Americans throw away enough paper and plastic cups, forks, and spoons to circle the equator 300 times The decomposition rate of a glass bottle takes over 4000 years to fully break down in a
landfill! Fact Three You would think that paper would be
the most recycled item, but according
to the 2007 recycling rate graph, it is
actually auto batteries. Objections "Why do we have to recycle, afterall it is not like the whole United States is littered with landfills?
The U.S. has definately calmed down on the number of landfills, but the size of the remaining landfills is increasing. Mandatory recycling assures a healthier and more effective way of handling trash. "Why does it matter if recyclable items
end up in landfills, it'll still decompose?
Indeed it will still decompose, but the process takes 50 - 4000 years to do so.
If we recycle, the soil will have less man-made trash to absorb. Recycling takes less time and is more environmentally effective. Getting Started There are two steps in recycling: Recognizing and Taking Action. Most schools, buisnesses and some neighborhoods are taking action while others just don't participate. With mandatory recycling, your whole community becomes cleaner, conservative, and you have the "luxury" of being able to have more recycled products to buy at the grocery. The End!
