Here in the UK they are now threatening to charge you for rubbish collection in order to encourage recycling. This seems like a ridiculous idea. Obviously I am apposed to having to pay out more money, especially as it will not help my journey to becoming a millionnaire. But I cannot see how it will solve the problem. I am sure that people will just start throwing their rubbish in other peoples bins, throwing it out in the countryside and using public and shop bins. I am sure that rewarding people for recycling would help - I know that a monetary reward would be best but expesnive for the givernment but perhaps if each local council set a recycling target and if it was reached didnt increase council tax so much, it could inspire people.
