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.
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
