One more reason to NOT recycle. The system discourages it.
I am an ardent conservationist, but on financial grounds, i refuse to participate in those silly curbside recycling programs. It is simply not cost effective to the municipality.
I outridgth refuse to waste the overpriced water the city sells me to clean out empty cans and bottles.
Besides, the bin is a great place to store more useful things.
How many garbage collection companies are there in the city?
My city has one collection company, and a similar law requiring everyone to pay into the monopoly the city supports. There’s only one motivation I can think of that would prompt a city to establish a monopoly for one specific business, then establish a law requiring all citizens to give money to that business.
And it isn’t a love of garbage collecting.
