There is a growing need for more recycling in America and the world in general. It is a shame and a disgrace that more is not being done by the do-nothing Congress. There is so much waste in America and the landfills are growing by the tons every day with no end in sight. The waste of plastic and paper alone is staggering when this could be recycled and put to good use! This does not even consider the nightmare of hazardous waste that continues to be dumped daily. There is really nothing being done from a federal level to solve this nightmare of a problem that grows by the minute. Where are the so-called great minds in this country? There are some recycling operations taking place, but the number is so small that it is ridiculous. I am positive that the public in general would support a good program, but it takes a well thought out plan and for that plan to be placed in operation. The coming generations will be faced with massive problems if something is not done and soon. The government and public is too involved in the live for today and make as much money as possible syndrome that everyone forgets that the planet should at the very least be considered while conducting their lives in that manner. Wake up America and demand action!
