Recycling Must be Increased

Central Arkansas needs to deal with the lack of recycling in the downtown area and in a large number of apartments/housing units. Please, please develop some strategies to start this process of collecting recycable products from offices, restaurants and otherlocalaties. I don't believe the Clinton Library even recycles. We can and must do better. Carol Roddy

Increase consumption taxes, decrease payroll taxes

Higher consumption taxes on raw materials from oil to metals to plastics to wood etc. would give a greater incentive to recycle more and to use less raw materials. This tax increase should be offset by a payroll tax decrease, which would laso favor repair and reuse over using new.
