A Trash Dump

A Recycling Awareness Poem
It is vital to recycle
For all people who live on Earth
To keep it free from all pollution
So Earth can stay green and beautiful.
The 50 states in the USA
Should all enforce recycling
And teach recycling to
Children in schools.
The hope for a cleaner planet
Should have been reality
A long time ago
To show respect for all life on Earth.
Humanity is not alone
Living on planet Earth
Elohim also made the plants and animals
And they cannot live in our pollution.
People create too much trash
Each and every single day
And to create recycling awareness
Is everyone's job.
In Europe recycling has long been established
As a law for all its citizens to keep
Americans also have to unite
If the environment matter to us.
Tell family and friends to recycle instead
Of making trash mountains
Because it matters for all life on Earth
To show respect for
Elohim's beautiful green Earth!!
Helping to create Recycling Laws
What do you think should be done to enforce recycling in the United States?
Why Recycling Matters!
Europe has a great recycling program and all citizens are required to put all their garbage in the proper recycling bins. German, especially, has been very tough on making sure its citizens recycle. In the United States recycling has not been taken very seriously up until now. Yes, there are recycling centers where one can take one's recyclable goods but most Americans don't have the time or energy to want to recycle their cardboard, plastics, glass, metals, and papers so there has to evolve a better plan to help Americans to want to recycle.
In our own household, we collect all our recyclable goods for 1 month and then take them to the recycle place near our neighborhood. The recycling center requires that all bottles be rinsed out and that the lids are taken off of all bottles which makes the recycling much more labor intensive. There should be a way that these recycling centers could at least accept bottles with the lids on and many more people would, possible, feel inclined to recycle.
One solution could be that each city could have a once a month recycle pickup in neighborhoods of a city and this way people could at least get into the habit of recycling. Most people want to live in a clean neighborhood and they care about the environment but if this is so true then people also need to fight for recycling to become a law.
Europe also has now small shopping centers where people can bring back the containers to have them refilled instead of discarding these containers. This is another great option to keep trash out of landfills.
I get very disheartened when I go to the recycle place once a month and I see people take their trash to the trash compactor, which is located next to the recycling bins. It disturbs me that people don't feel the initiative to see how important recycling is for the entire environment and most people feel that just throwing one's garbage away is so much easier. Only a few people show up at the recycling area and that makes me happy, though I wish there were a lot more people willing to recycle. At this point in the United States recycling is voluntary but every day we pray for this to become a mandatory law.
