  • No, quit trying to control everything.

    Everyone I know seems to be on this going green kick. People are reusing bags at that grocery. Target even provides a discount if you use your own bags these days. Where that is fine and good, it should not be required. People need to be able to make their own decisions. In our area a person has to pay more to recycle. Some people don't have the money. Besides, recycling consumes more energy than using raw materials. Recycling has its place but it should not be shoved on everyone.

  • Compost returns valuable nutrients to the soil to help maintain soil quality and fertility.

    Compost is a mild, slow release, natural fertilizer that won’t burn plants like chemical fertilizers. As more cities begin paying attention to the amount of waste they are collectively sending off to landfills, it’s likely that more will consider these types of approaches to reducing overall waste. Reduce the amount of waste it sends to landfill

  • Recycling needs to be mandated

    Recycling plastics, electronics, clothing, toys, etc., and composting should be mandated by every state. Because of the lack of recycling facilities and the limited recyclable items they may take back, I believe the government should establish recycling facilities everywhere and equip all homes with a recycle and compost bin and the "Recycle Man" can collect the items weekly. Recycling will help the planet, help create jobs, and teach people the value of the Earth. If recycling was made more convenient and the consequences of not recycling be made known in a way that not guilt-trips people but encourages them to take action, then people would recycle more. Most elementary schools teach children the basic "Reduce, Reuse, Recycle" concept, which is wonderful, but take it a step further and teach middle schoolers, high schoolers, and college students the types of plastics, how to recycle them, etc. Educate them about the eco-friendly companies, like Preserve Plastics and TerraCycle.

    I understand that this is a free country and we all have free will, but caring for our planet should be a personal responsibility for all of us, since it is said that, "We did not inherit the land from our grandparents, but are borrowing it from our grandchildren."

  • We are destroying our Earth

    We need to go back to basics. Too much is being done to disrespect and destroy the earth and not enough to preserve it. The earth provides for all of our needs for free, and how do we repay it? By trashing it, polluting it and spraying it down with chemicals. And then charging money to do it! Imagine how much of an impact it would make if it were mandatory for

    1) Companies that manufacture products to A) use only recyclable products and packaging B) use recycled products to make their products (paper, paper towels, toilet paper, greeting cards, etc.. As many categories as possible)

    2) We as inhabitants of this beautiful, giving earth to recycle.

  • It is a necessity!

    The lesser we recycle, the more the trees will be cut down, the lesser our chances of survival. The earth and raw materials we have, they are not given to us by our forefathers, we just borrow them from our future generations. And since we borrow it, we should do well to make sure that we return it to them, otherwise there will be nothing left for them.

  • We should! Don't be lazy.

    Has no one read all the evidence of why we should and how it's giving us more time on earth? How hard is it to put recyclables in a separate bin every week? Come on America! Instead of creating a mess for our future children we should be fixing and preventing mistakes. So, later when we are old and graying we wont ask ourselves how we got there. And if money is the problem fight to not make it one. It starts with one and grows big enough to make a change.

  • We should all recycle

    Because it should. Recycling is important. Without recycling more trees will be cut down and less air will be produced and with less air,how will we survive? If we recycle paper tin cans ext we can keep making new things out of old things. So what do you say do you want a new TV out of old things?

  • All states should have to recycle.

    All states should have to recycle because it is easy to do and helps humans strive in the things we do in our everyday lives. It can help make lots of new toys for children who are not fortunate enough to have them. Also it can help make new equipment that helps make cleaner environments.

  • Yes, recycling should be required everywhere.

    Of course, recycling needs to be done all over the globe. We are a global society now and the planet is in trouble. However, we can not legislate what happens everywhere else. We can legislate what needs to happen in our own 50 states and therefore we should make sure that recycling gets done in every state.

  • No more rules!!!!!!!!

    Recycling is good for the environment, BUT DON'T MAKE PEOPLE DO IT!!!! Sure go ahead recycle if you want, but don't make the people that don't give a crap about recycling do it!!!!!! Just stop making more rules. Soon we won't even be a free stinking country, if we even still are. Just leave us alone.

  • Stop this ridiculous nonsense, and live life!

    I totally agree with all of you that stated your opinions up there!^ you are all right!Recycling is good and everything and i know you guys are trying to stop air pollution with recycling, BUT you do not have to control everything that goes on in this world, you just have to live life while you got it, and i understand that you want to take a stand for something before life ends. But you guys, i mean come on, there is no sense in fretting about all this recycling business! Go ahead reuse plastic bags, cups, cans and all that other crap, but it ain't gonna make no difference! All it's gonna do is stop a little smug of air pollution from going into the air. Sure recycling is good, but don't make everyone pay to put trash in a dumb machine to make it something again. If you wanna recycle, then recycle, but done make people do it that don't give a crap. Are we good??

  • Recycling is optional!

    This is stupid. States can recycle if they want. It is not fair to make people who can't recycle recycle. I think these people are stupid to think that all states are packed with people who love recycling. I do not think that recycling should be mandatory for all states.

  • Why should people be fined for not recycling? The answer: they shouldn’t.

    If the government is going to force us to recycle will they force us to keep our homes at a lower or higher temperature? Will they start to fine us for high electricity use? What about how much you drive your car? Will the government fine us for more than a certain number of hours we use Wi-Fi? Will we turn to a one child policy, having to pay more for more than one kid? Hopefully not, we have so many privileges that we have grown used to and if the government takes some away, it will take a long-and partially painful-few months or even years to adapt. Adding on to that, there is free-will. It’s a free country here in Canada so can we do what we want, within reason of course. But, technically, we don’t HAVE to recycle. There is no law saying that we HAVE to compost. No law saying that we HAVE to have a car. No law saying that we HAVE to have a TV. So why should we HAVE to recycle? The government would do this just for the extra money because they know that quite a few families don’t recycle. For a lot of other things that you get fined for-if you continually do it-you can go to jail so does that means if you don’t recycle you can go to jail too. Now that doesn’t seem right.
    If people are fined for recycling, they would lose their money to go towards life necessities. For instance, food for themselves and their families, clothes to wear and even their house if things progress. Fines can be a huge amount of money that quite a few families can’t afford. The government can fire people, causing families to go into debt and if the government also adds fining for not recycling on to that, there could be people living on the streets because of lack of money. There are already a lot of people on the streets and if the increase of finning plus loss of jobs, most of the cities’ population would be without a home. Where would we be then?
    In conclusion, finning people for not recycling is absurd and un-ethical. We shouldn’t be wasting our time with little things like where to put our garbage when there are more important issues in the world.

  • No, it should be optional.

    No, recycling should not be mandatory for all states, because it is expensive. Where we live, it is more expensive to recycle than it is to throw something in the trash. People with low incomes cannot afford to recycle, even if they would like to. The government cannot force people to be charitable. It should be optional whether to recycle.

  • No, quit trying to control everything.

    Everyone I know seems to be on this going green kick. People are reusing bags at that grocery. Target even provides a discount if you use your own bags these days. Where that is fine and good, it should not be required. People need to be able to make their own decisions. In our area a person has to pay more to recycle. Some people don't have the money.
