There is economic and environmental benefit of enforcing recycling. With the numerous advantages, why doesn’t the national government have a federal law to mandate recycling? The term “devolution” comes into play, where the federal government passes recycling issues to states and local governments. There has been some attempts to push legislation in Congress, but it has yet to pass hearings. Recycling is not important to states that have a lower population which means there is extra land for the creation of landfills. There should be a legislation passed that can enforce recycling in all states. There is no point to using landfills if we find methods to reduce and reuse materials. A federal law needs to be implemented.
