CURBSIDE RECYCLING – What it Could Mean for Gallup

E-mail Print PDF
Recycling, particularly Curbside Recycling, is the “smart” thing for communities to do. Cost factors such as (1) the high cost of creating a new landfill cell for trash [.5 million],  (2) higher cost for transporting that trash to the Red Rocks Landfill in Thoreau [fuel and personnel], and  (3) tipping fees paid on the amount of trash generated by the citizens of Gallup and deposited in the landfill have made Curbside Recycling a more attractive option.  These cost savings can add dollars to recycling and solid waste infrastructure.

CHAPTER ELEVEN – I’M FROM THE EPA AND I’M HERE TO HELP

BUREAUCRATIC SCIENCE: When government controls scientific method bad things happen. It is the role of scientists to challenge any hypothesis. They do this by using the scientific method of disproving the hypothesis (falsifiability). Scientists must be skeptics otherwise they are not practicing science. When bureaucratic scientists only work to prove a hypothesis they are not practicing science, they are advancing a political agenda. The modern bureaucratic process of science is now not even trying to search for the truth, it’s instead hunting for an impact factor, for attention, for headlines, and inevitably, for...
