County recycling program needs improvement

The recycling program in Tooele County has room to improve. Although the blue bag system is in place, the blue bags are very flimsy, and much of the recyclable materials in them are lost among the garbage. A program similar to other counties would be ideal, with a separate bin and separate truck for recyclables. By doing this, more recycling material would be able to make it to recycling plants, thereby making the world a better place. By recycling, fewer raw materials are taken from the Earth, and material already used can be made into something new. Although a better recycling program will mean that the quarterly trash control fee will go up, the investment in a brighter, greener future for the rising generation is worth it.
