What are the pros and cons of a recycling plant in my area?

    This sounds suspiciously like a homework question…To write about this topic, it’s important to look at the potential pollution that can be given off by a recycling center. This is a big con of recycling. However, in my opinion one of the most important resources you’ll find is the opinion of the people in that community. Go around your area and ask people how they would feel about a recycling plant in their area. Opinions of your community can play heavily into this decision.

    Other people have asked similar questions about similar projects through other answer sites, like here.

    With a little bit of research, both online, in a library, and in person, you should be able to put together a good answer that is actually relevant to your community. We don’t live in your area, therefore we can’t necessarily tell you what would be a good or a bad thing about buildign a recycling plant there.

    Recycling plants can be a good source of jobs for your community, which is one of the biggest pros.  Having a local recycling plant can also make your local recycling programs more successful by providing a nearby outlet for their materials.

    On the con side, it will depend largely on what type of materials are being recycled and where exactly the plant is located.  There can be some dust, noise and litter associated with recycling activities, so you want to make sure that your new neighbor has plans in place to mitigate any such problems.

    On the negative side, there could possibly be smells and or dust/expelled materials coming from the plant.  It really depends on how close you are living to the plant.  On the other hand, it would be great to have a recycling plant so close — you could just completely bypass putting your recycling in a bin, you could just drop it off at the plant!  Also, anything that can create jobs in this economy is a great thing.
