Re: Recycling in Bayou Vista

Interesting point of view but, what you have made is a common fallacious statement regarding environmental economics. While it is true that the profits derived from curbside recycling have stalled in the past few years, there are more added benefits that can be achieve from the implementation of a neighborhood recycling program. Two major benefits are reduced pressure on landfills and the secondary economical activities that are derived from the recycling process. These secondary activities include increased employment opportunities for a community when compared to standard waste management. Additionally, recent research has shown that the reduction of pressure on local landfills has decreased micro-plastics in the ecosystem which has direct health and environmental benefits.
