Why The U.S. Should Make Recycling Mandatory

How many times a day do you think you mistakenly put your leftover materials in the wrong bin? Our planet is slowly corrupting, and we need to bring attention to this matter immediately. Hello fellow classmates, my name is Eleanor Hall, and today I will be explaining the dangers of Landfill, and why the U.S. should make Recycling a mandatory requirement.

The world as we know it is constantly changing positively and also negatively. When trash is collected into the landfills, methane is released, a highly toxic greenhouse gas that absorbs heat, thus why global warming is such a threat to us. Not only is it harming our air quality, but also the wildlife around us. 

Animals that call the landfills there “home” have a very hazardous diet consisting of plastic, aluminum, and many other resources you would find laying in a garbage bin. Finally landfills put a life long effect on our soil and water. After baking in the sun, toxic chemicals seep to the bottom layers of the leftover build up, and drastically harm the soil and water. The water and soil is weakened to the point that it is no longer able to fight off forms of bacteria.

Not only will recycling benefit our environment, but our economy. A variety of new jobs will be created, just to make sure that people are being told what to do, and following the new guidelines that the United States would entail. You see one simple action like this, keep in mind that many other countries have taken, would not only benefit our environment, but our economy.
