We've been trying to base the economy and the recycling percentage on charitable offerings for far too long and it's never going to happen unless we have to pay for not contributing. Destroying valuable and finite resources won't help either the economy or the planet.
If we are all, including flat dwellers, supplied with addressed sacks for scanning and if containing recyclables, a fee is charged, there would be an immediate increase in recycling, with medium recyclers i.e.paper, boxes and glass bottles which are heavy and bulky for the kitchen bin, making more effort and others opting to do so.
With recycling at 35% and participation at 70% that's a big difference.
Savings:-
1%. 85k
10%. 850k
20%. 1.7m
30%. 2.55m
40%. 3.4m
No doubt there would be black sack dumping, as there will with limited bin space and indeed already is, but if rigorously investigated and fines made under the Clean Neighbourhoods Act they could be seen to not be entirely lost to the economy.
Why should other services be facing yet more drastic cuts when so much is being wasted?
With allowances made for the elderly and genuinely confused, can anyone find any reasonable objection to this?
Better to forget mandatory bins and try mandatory recycling?
