Some people claim that not enough of the waste from homes is recycled. They say that only way to increase recycling is for government to make it a legal requirement. To what extent do you think laws are needed to make people recycle more of their waste?

from governments to make regulations to force more people to contribute to recycling programmes. I think laws are essential to direct people at turning their waste into recyclable ones, but they should be strengthened by extra measures. Legal regulations are so vital for carrying out an effective recycling
programme
that many governments give importance to enacting mandatory recycling laws. These laws generally charge fines to people who throw their domestic refuse;
however
, they include versatile benefits for the community.

Finally mandatory

Finally, mandatory
recycling laws keep plastics away from land fillings and injuring the animals and other living beings, and make factories reproduce rubbish,
such
as compost used in farms and gardens, steel meeting the demand for new mining of iron ore.
Hence
, it is clear that laws play very significant role in recycling unwanted materials, and it is necessary to make
such
regulations for protecting the environment, and saving and even gaining money.
However
, governments should apply to some measures if they want those laws, so the recycling programmes to become more effective.

difficult, especially
for wide countries to some extent, regulations related to recycling should be enforced in the whole country as much as possible, as lack of uniformity may derail the recycling process to be maintained efficiently.
For instance
, a productive

can not be performed in USA nowadays, because mandatory recycling laws cover both business and residential establishments states like Connecticut and Philadelphia, while they cover only business establishments in states
such
as Florida.
Secondly
, local authorities collecting and reproducing the waste should be provided financial aid by their central government, because recycling of some materials
such
as glass and plastic may sometimes be more expensive than sending them to landfills.

, it may become necessary to alleviate the recycling laws.
Thus

However
