Recyclers deserve a reward [Letter]

December 26, 2013

As residents of Baltimore County, we were asked several years ago to participate in the recycling program. We were asked to get separate trash cans and mark them to indicate recycling. The glass and papers are sorted, and I assume the county profits in some way, but most important, these items do not find there way into the landfill.

On recycling pickup day, however, I have noticed most of my neighbors do not participate. Maybe the county should reward those who do in the form of a property tax break. I know it would be hard to track, but I am sure county officials could come up with plan.
