    So recycle already, maybe it’ll catch on and the town won’t have a new excuse to raise taxes to fund something that should be self sufficient. Not to mention the three trash can you get to pay for just because some jerk wants someone else to save the world.

    When I lived in Portland, their recycling was… interesting. The rules changed every 3 to 4 weeks. Drove people nuts.

    Maybe too much acid in the sixties, man.

    we have a recycling program in our town and they still raised our taxes. We are close to being one of the highest taxes in our state. The big ski resorts are the only ones with higher taxes. It’s not fun finding out you paid 15% taxes on some of your groceries. Of course our recycling program is free. We are the ones taking our recycling to the recycling stations.

    Every other week the recycling truck comes in my city. Our taxes have been 6.5 to 7% for years. Of course my city is dangerous and poor and we all plan to leave as soon as possible.

    When recycling became the “norm” in the UK, we were promised that it would lower our taxes, as companies would buy the materials for re-processing. Now it costs more as we have to pay to ship it elsewhere.

    The answer lies in not producing so much packaging and making it easier to recycle items like batteries and print cartridges.

    How do you figure that a recycling program would be costing you less in taxes? Do you even know how a recycling program works?

    There is a plant where people work to sort items which have been deposited in those boxes. Before this step, a factory to do the sorting had to be built… Meanwhile, did you reduce your contribution to the weekely or bi-weekly garbage collection, or did you increase it, just because there is recycyling? Plus the landfill and/or incineration still continues for non-recyclable stuff. So now you are paying for the two streams: garbage landfill and sorting.

    Look into it, and you’ll find that your amount of garbage is the reason that a recycling program doesn’t pay for itself…

    I’m always amazed that people want certain services from any level of government and they want low taxes. Do you expect people that set up those services and/ or later provide those services to work for free?
