Both articles discuss a different point of view on recycling. The writer of Going Green for Gatesburg wants to reduce the amount of waste added to the country landfill by 90%. The writer of No Recycling Laws for Gatesburg thinks recyling is a good for the enviroment but also opposes the idea because of the extreme and unnecessary laws that will follow.
One of the environmental groups in the area, No Waste Louisiana, partners with local businesses and organizations to coordinate actions to minimize the environmental impacts in the region. No Waste Louisiana representative Catherine Schoeffler Comeaux writes, "Cleaning up the mostly plastic litter on our Gulf Coast and in our bayous will not be accomplished by a few do-gooders picking up trash. Recycling will not take care of the excessive and egregious amount of single use disposable plastics produced worldwide every day. No matter how much you pick up, no matter how many litter bugs you reform, no matter what you recycle — unless we reduce our waste on the front end as individuals while demanding changes in industry, we will continue to see our landscape, our food chain, our very genetic code contaminated.” Here, the representative identifies the high amounts of waste found in the area. While the representative recognizes that recycling, on its own, will not solve the problem, recycling is part of the solution.
Municipal solid wastes are leftovers made by the population such as food, plastic bottles, household wares and many more. These items referred by most as “the garage” or “trash”. (U.S. Environmental Protection Agency, 2015) In the early 1900’s, incinerators were used to burn waste however by the Mid-20th century, lawmakers enacted the first government regulations in an attempt to address increasing concerns about the environmental impact of unregulated waste management practices. With the first waste management legislation being passed in 1965, brought along the creation of the Environmental Protection Agency in 1970, thus bringing us into a new world of waste management.(Vault, n.d.)

The GatesburgGoGreen Initiative is an absolutely horrible idea in my opinion. The citizens of Gatesburg already recycle, why take things to the extreme? The thought of increased taxes, criminalization, fines, and utter invasion of privacy over trash is revolting.
When food waste rots, the waste attracts rodents which soon poses as a health hazard. It then releases methane which converts to carbon dioxide in the atmosphere, contributing to global warming. With urban farms, landfills could be reduced by turning food waste into soil and energy. Allen did this by, going to local stores and made deals to instruct the employees to dump their produce and trimmings in buckets he provided and would pick up a few days a week to prevent it from going to landfills. To look at the big picture, if more urban businesses cooperate, all of their food waste could be turned into soil rather than rot and contribute to global warming.
There are though some problems that would come with this proposal. The GatesburgGoGreen Initiative would place strict laws on what residents can and can not put inside of each bin. The initiative proposes that fines will be placed on citizens who do not adhere strictly to the rules of what can go inside of each bin. Also, each bin is equipt with a radio-frequency identification computer chip, which will weigh each bin, and compare how much waste is placed in the recyling bins, versus the trash bins (waste that will go to the county landfll).
