Moderator: Please consider this corrected version rather than the first.

Budgetary red ink, however little or much, is conveniently utilized by our governments as an excuse to not recycle the vast majority, if not the virtual entirety, of materials circulating throughout society—including broken vacuum cleaners, cappuccino machines, etcetera. Instead, they allow the essentially gratuitous dumping of such materials into landfills or the pollution production from their burning.
If need be, any red-ink monetary losses should be recouped by placing recycling fees upon all purchasable items, rather than just the current relatively meager few (e.g. bottles).
Perhaps if enough people already inclined to recycle as much as is currently allowed by recycling-box rules begin to place many more non-accepted solids into such boxes, the powers that be might feel adequately more compelled to adapt/equip the recycling plants to enable the recycling of such solids, if not even others.
We’ve already wasted way too much material and especially ecologically-limited time.

Lets recycle another thread shall we. I'm all for providing second chances.

Okay Frank. One material that is recycled successfully is aluminum. Why is that? Because people can turn a buck doing it.

Why does most other popular forms of recycling fail? Because people cannot turn a buck doing it.

It just that simple.

Of course the hidden costs associated with the lack of recycling have no consideration in the limited views presented by some.
