plastic bag recycling plunges in s.a.

by:Sengtor     2020-04-24
Two years ago, when San Antonio launched a residential plastic bag recycling program, the message was to pile up football-sized plastic bags.
On the contrary, it seems that the San Antonio people are throwing the ball.
City data show that plastic bag recycling has fallen sharply after a strong start.
In fiscal 2015 from October to September, more than 550 tons of plastic bags were recycled.
But it was far from that pace in fiscal 2016.
Between October and August, only 152 tons of plastic bags were recycled.
What happened, the San Antonio, which commanded the city, provided two possible powers.
A good start reflects people\'s willingness to try to recycle any and all types of plastic bags, which increases the number of early ones, he said.
But over time, fewer and fewer people continue to cram plastic bags into the size of football, bringing down the number of people.
Instead, many people put individual bags into recycled items that cannot be recycled.
Because they messed up the machine.
The city is planning a new marketing campaign to get people back into the habit of recycling plastic bags, mcculi said.
So, as a review, here\'s the basics of plastic bag recycling: The bag must be dry and empty. No receipts.
Dark bags cannot be recycled.
Plug the bag to the size of the football, fasten the handle and put it in your recycle bin.
Pat yourself on the back.
If you do, you will help with the environment, keep our beautiful city clean and help to improve the efficiency of the local government.
There is no doubt that the fight over recycling plans will lead to a renewed call to ban plastic bags.
This is a sensitive issue, as plastic bag bans usually cause discussion at the state level where plastic bag bans are banned.
At this point, our views are a bit subtle.
The ban on plastic bags is a local problem.
Some communities want to ban plastic bags, while others do not.
We believe this should be respected and respected.
We also believe that sticking to the recycling program is the right move for this community.
The ban will be harmful to consumers and retailers.
In addition to recycling, we also support continuing education on how to use cloth bags as a replacement for plastic bags.
There is a way to foster change without a ban.
Nevertheless, the committee will resume its meeting soon, which may mean another effort to ban plastic bags.
If you believe in local control, it\'s a no. go.
In addition, if plastic bags are banned in Texas, the Environmental Protection Agency will have to issue a new rule prohibiting states from banning plastic bags in cities. We’re kidding. Sort of.
The bottom line is: if possible, recycle plastic bags by gathering them in football-sized places.
Stay Beautiful, San Antonio.
