In doing some fact digging for positive ways to encourage recycling I found this:
Americans recycle only 5% of all the plastics produced in this country. (Factmonster.com)
Why only 5% when recycling plastic is easy and it saves money?!?!?! Yes garbage is now a commodity. If someone will buy it then you can sell it. I am proud to say Darien is ahead of the curve on this. So I don't know if the proposed bag tax in NYC is a good thing or a bad thing but I do know if we do better than 5% maybe a tax wouldn't be necessary. As we look toward Spring and Summer here is a thought for paper recycling .... maybe choose the ice cream cone before the cup.
A Darien native, I provide market knowledge, detailed and efficient service along with supportive understanding. Let me know how I can help. Call me at 203-656-6557.
