    So you guys are for the environment being polluted? Should be bring back asbestos as well? After all it only kills you if you have to be around it.

    No I think we need to control everyone and everything all the time. Imagine how small WPB's land fill would be without those publix bags full of dog doo!

    Just think for a moment if those WPB/PBG Poodle Fanciers would just let FiFi and Petey **** in their own yards. Now there is a thought. It would cut down on a lot of things.
    The same can be said for that nasty feline Morris who thinks that he must dig in someone else's mulch.

    California is definitely different. There are several chains in Florida that don't give away bags anymore. They charge you or you bring your own.

    This was how it started in Cali. Within weeks, 'designer grocery bags' and 'donation to charity' bags started appearing ;)

    Good on you. But, just for the sake of argument, should it be legislated that you do that? Should you be fined for not doing that?


    Most people will act due to laziness. Whether it should be a law or not, depends on how important you believe recycling is to the environment.

    Oh, wait, I'm thinking of paper bags.

    Thank the war on drugs for not even more easily made paper.

    Should your municipality have to arrange to clean up and recycling for the bags handed out by a private business which provides little more than low end jobs to the community?

    The bags are nuisance advertising that costs us money.

    One of my customers cant get enough recycled plastic bags. They have to buy containers of them from Europe. It is integral to their product.

    How different is the recycling on those? I never heard an answer as to why it added costs.

    You got that right.

    He means why do many recyclers not accept the plastic bags used by grocery and many other stores for recycling. Mine does not, they even have ****'s who come around on garbage day and check the blue bin for them. If they find them they tape a nasty note on it telling you to take them out or they will not pick up your can. They use bright orange tape and put it so that it holds the can lid closed.
    If the driver sees the orange tape, they keep driving.

    I do not know what makes this kind of plastic so that recyclers do not want it.

    Maybe they clog the sorting systems. Like I said, it is the staple of one of my customers in the product of their products. They could use virgin material but its their pitch to use the recycled bags.

    I would bet that it doesn't pay for them to recycle.

    Kalifornia: the state of lost freedom. Though I like what the bill's intent is, the execution is **** poor. A prime example of over regulation

    I have to admit, the huggers make a good argument this time on the single use bags.
    Therefore, I vow to resuse my condoms no less that 2x
    I have a much bigger and more powerful button
