Regarding the Clark County Commission’s vote on recycling:

Where is the sense in collecting recycled material once a week if the rate of recycling is 20 percent or less? It won’t make more people recycle just because of pickup being once a week if they don’t already do it.

If it were mandatory to recycle, then I could agree with it. Whatever happened to the movement of people encouraging saving energy and natural resources?

By recycling, you reduce air pollution and save oil, electricity, gas, water, man hours, trees and other natural resources.

It looks to me like Republic Services is making out on this deal, not us.
