Recycling isn’t a money-maker
I applaud the Cary Town Council for wanting to find incentives to increase recycling. I disagree, however, with the comment in the article indicating that the recycling program is “losing money.”
Do the Cary fire and police departments lose money? Recycling should not be expected to make money any more than other town services.
And when balancing the budget, do we figure in the savings from not putting all of that paper, plastic and glass in the land fill?
If there is concern about the cost of the recycling program, just increase fees a dollar or two. Sometimes you just have to do what’s right, regardless of the cost.
