When I last visited the EPA, (April 2008), I wanted to know specifically, what is being done to stem the tide of debris (plastic in particular) being dumped into our oceans. The answer surprised me – nothing. The challenge is that every county, every municipality, is responsible for garbage, recycling and containment. Many areas in our country do not recycle at all, others are meticulous. So I pose the question… should this be a mandated initiative from the Federal Government level? If so, what would you focus the legislative action toward?
Do You Think Local Governments Should do More to Spur Recycling?
