The volume of waste stream is increasing in an unprecedented manner and recycling cannot keep up pace. Some, among others, argue that making recycling a legal demand is the key in promoting recycling. (33 words)
Some argue that rules are necessary to boost recycling. First of all, especially in large cities it is much easier for people to comprehend how critical recycling is. Unlike voluntary activities, those required by law are monitored by the government and are punishable in case rule are broken, so people take them more seriously and try to pay more attention. Secondly, as soon as a rule is laid, it forces the government to take more responsibility. Implementing any law requires regular budget and human capital, therefore, the government too, has to take the matter more seriously since in case its face they will be held accountable. This all contribute to a higher chance of success for the whole proposed recycling scheme. (121 words)
There are, however, possible complications to consider on the way of turning recycling to a rule. First of all, for any such plans to work efficiently, certain budget will be required. This may not be pleasant for the government as there are always numerous other priorities to scrutinize to reach the final conclusion. It may not be the priority for the country or does not necessarily make economic sense when considering all expenses involved. Secondly, recycling by nature is something personal that citizens perform at home in their private space, which unlike say traffic rules that apply to vehicles with certain plates, may not be easy to monitor and hold those who broke the rules accountable.

In conclusion, while having rules for recycling may be able to help citizens, it creates its own problems. (18 words)
