A Spot of Honesty

Via There, I Fixed It:

The title on this can lid is redundant. It's all waste.

And it should all be treated as waste - just thrown into a gigantic hole in the ground and then buried.

Because recycling post-consumer plastic is a huge waste of taxpayer money - there's no free-market demand for it.

Recycling post-consumer paper MAYBE breaks even, so why bother?

Recycling aluminum... well, lets be honest - it'd be more efficient to throw your cans in the gutter and let scavenging hobos make a living off collecting them. It'd not only be a decent act of charity, it's also a profitable and sustainable business model.

  1. If we'd just leave more junk out there for the scavenging hobos, maybe they'd quit being electrocuted while trying to steal copper wire.

    People, think of the hobos for once!
