NEWSFLASH!!! KANSAS CITY RECYCLING WASTES TIME AND RESOURCES!!!

Great news link from one of the best TKC readers along with a bit of waste management testimony for Sunday night and as we try to prevent the era of Chinese hegemony for as long as humanly possible . . .

This article raises the question: What’s happening to KC’s recycling???

I’ll bet more than we’d like to think is just getting junked in a landfill. I’ll bet half of us at least — I know I do often enough — “salt” the recycling with nonrecylables to evade the 2 bag limit."

Is This the End of Recycling?

Americans are consuming more and more stuff. Now that other countries won't take our papers and plastics, they're ending up in the trash. After decades of earnest public-information campaigns, Americans are finally recycling. Airports, malls, schools, and office buildings across the country have bins for plastic bottles and aluminum cans and newspapers.

Ok let me get this straight. Some idiot, probably Larson, makes a half-baked "I'll bet" comment without even having any idea whether it's even remotely close to being true, and your conclusion is KANSAS CITY RECYCLING WASTES TIME AND RESOURCES?

Are you mentally ill or something?

I watch my trash guy every week throw everything in the trash part of the truck, at no time does he attempt to seperate the recyclables from the trash, hell, I even have it on video, I’ve called 311 multiple times and they just say they’ll look into it, that my friends was three years ago and nothing has happened.

Nobody is recycling shit.

10:21 Larson or somebody put a whole bunch of folks in their places this last week on this recycling joke. So you see moron, the adults talked about this issue here already. The costs for recycling are costing too much to provide and nobody is buying the crap that is recycled. Maybe you need to study up on things before you start calling others idiots, you FUCKING IDIOT!

It takes more energy to recycle something that it did to make it originally. Simple physics.

I stopped recycling everything but paper after the 60 Minutes story (2-3 months ago). It's a joke. Our plastic is trucked to then crammed on to ships that wander the seas looking for islands to dump it on. Fish eat the plastic then we eat the fish.

The only way to solve this is to consume less and stop buying things packaged in plastic.

@7:57, geezer crap eater kid, I thought you progressive millennials were supposed to be environmentally conscientious? Guess not. But, it was your parents who always pushed the do as we say not as we do mantra. Waste management, whether trash or "recycling" is a major issue. There is only so much space available to fill and cap millions of tons of waste and prevent the leachate from getting into our water sources. Something has to change, and unfortunately it will be a less-than-green solution. Unfortunately I don't know what it is, but my opinion is VHT combustion. High heat is the only way to convert many manufactured materials back in to their raw component molecules. Time in anaerobic environments without high UV exposure breaks down materials at a colossally slow rate.

Maybe we really should just take your advice, stick our collective heads in our asses and spend life drinking away in Westport or P&L or any other area with a high-crime component 'cause its trendy n' cool. Dude, your attitude towards virtually all civically or future-orientated thought legitimately scares the shit out of me.

Surely there is an arts program in KCMO funded by taxpayers where I can get money to build a trash pile from recycled shit and call it artwork

7:57 is the guy who got knocked the fuck out last week and thinks we have all forgotten about it. I may not like what I see Dave, Chuck or Tracy for that matter say in their stories and posts but what they do say is factual and the nasty ass truth. 7:57 everytime you bitch about what these three talk about tells me that what they are saying is probably true and you feel the need to try and discredit them.

Only a total social reject with a severe case of mental illness would bitch about someone maybe posting anonymous while doing the exact same thing. It's the ramblings of a person possessing the mind of a child who thinks everyone is stupid because they themselves lack the knowledge to know when something they see is actually correct. Grow up, you fool none of us you social dysfunctional attention seeking whores.

^^^Chuck and stupid dave are horrendous racists, idiotic misogynists, and barely functioning retards. Anytime they get punked on here (which I admit, is often) is always good to see. They are right to be discredited and mocked as relentlessly as they can be. They are both degenerates.
