Is Recycling worth it?
If I return plastic PET bottles, I get paid for every recyclable bottle that I take to a recycle station. I am only get reimburse for the money I was charged for each bottle when i purchased it. When I recycle metal, newspapers, glass, Light-bulbs, Batteries…. I receive no payment. I know in the states you can get money in some places for recycling paper. We do not have that system in Sweden. I think we should get money. The companies should have to pay us for our recyclable waste. There is big money in recycling. No one talks about how much the companies pay the municipalities for the recyclable trash? Are they getting if for free? I want to know if there is toxic waste material from while making recycled products. If so how it the waste being disposed of? Is it environmentally sound to recycle all products. Shouldn’t we ban non biodegradable and un-recyclable products?
