Did you know that Canada ships millions of tons of trash to the US every year? I didn’t.

    Great comment, great to hear from someone really informed. One q: wouldn't higher fees also result in more recycling? Why don't we pay folks more for recyclables, compost, then there'd be more incentive not to litter?
