As one of the earliest industry country and the most advanced country, America is also a big country of energy consumption. So what is the situation of recycling in America? Since there is no national law that mandates recycling, state and local government often introduce recycling requirements.
Specifically speaking, what is the role of government in recycling in America? On a national level, United States Environmental Protection Agency oversees various waste issues such as regulation of hazardous issues and setting recycling goals. Of course, every state has great independence in dealing with this problem. States’ regulation falls into two categories: landfill ban and recycling goals. Some states like Wisconsin, Minnesola, Michigan with landfill ban make it illegal to dispose of enumerated items in a landfill.
Other states like California and Illinois focus on recycling goals. Some of them such as Hawaii have passed he laws that establish deposits or refund values to promote reuse and recycling while other states prefer mandatory recycling. It refers to that recyclables would be prohibited from house holds, business and apartment garbage. For example, those scraps including cardboard and paper would be prohibited from garbage. If garbage collector finds more than 10 percent of the container filled with recyclables, they will leave a tag. On the third tag they will then leave a fine of 50 dollars. However, with households there will be no fine. They will leave a tag and ask you sort out the garbage that they will collect the next week.
