Honest Bender: It's 2014 and they're just getting around to banning styrofoam?Get with the times!Do you hicks still burn tires?
mrshowrules: Banning drink sizes was the dumbest farking thing ever but banning materials that end up in landfills may have merit.
Destructor: Offer a base $1000 reward for clear photographic evidence of some nitwit polluting leading to a conviction. It might be more if it's a serious case of dumping (for example). You can only claim the reward once or twice a year (attempt to stop fakers). If you're caught faking to get a reward, you get a massive fine and real jail time.Someone convicted of the crime pays at least $2k + work community service in the form of litter pickup for a year
jjorsett: ZAZ: In my area they're going after plastic bags because that's the progressive thing to do. The supermarkets already recycle bags (Shaws) or use paper (Trader Joe's). Little stores would be exempt. Sometimes even a part time legislative body has too much time on its hands.Remember when plastic bags were the answer because they saved trees? Why DOES TRADER JOE'S HATE TREES?
