Environmentalists always concern about the practise of people in wastage recycling. Their arguments of enforcing the government to set up the law are based on the believe that people would obey the law and avoid penalties. Therefore, people would be forced to build up the habit of recycling under the new regulation. However, I have more concerns of how practical the government can implement the law as well as the drawbacks after legislation.

Firstly, I agree legislation can enforce people to recycle the waste in a small extent. People usually avoid recycling the rubbish due to laziness in my opinion. Even though there are both recycle and general bin, people would still tend to throw all the rubbish to the general wastage bin rather than separate the rubbish before that. However, people would usually try to avoid penalty if there are acknowledged of the cost of being lazy. Therefore, legislation may be helpful to decrease the unnecessary wastage through recycling.

Although the idea of putting this matter to the legislative level is not a problem, there are more concerns behind the issue. Practically, it is difficulty for the council to implement the law. In the process of setting up the legislation, the government needs to consider the factor of how to penalise people without obeying the law and recycle the rubbish properly. Based on the current practise, the council usually collect the wastage once a week. During the process of wastage collection, the rubbish collection truck is utilised to pull the rubbish bin upside down towards the back of the truck. Therefore, it is difficulty to recognise if there is any rubbish which is supposed to be recycled. Meanwhile, no matter the rubbish bin on the street or inside the multi-units apartments, it is impossible to distinguish whose fault of not recycling the rubbish properly. In addition, it would take extra cost of time and labour to follow up whose has misconduct behaviour without recycling the rubbish. Therefore, penalizing people without recycling the rubbish with legislation is not practical in a large extent.

In conclusion, law regulation to penalise people without recycling the wastage is not an ideal solution encourage people to recycle the rubbish and protect the environment. On the other hand, I suggest education is more practical and fundamental to promote and change the attitude of people about the importance of recycling the rubbish and the influence of not doing so.
