City should recycle more

Shelby Goodman, Minot

We need to recycle because most of our trash can be recycled. I have three reasons why we should recycle.

We make a lot of pollution. If you drive to recycle your trash to throw away you make a lot of pollution.

So we should make one recycling day and one trash day each week. The trucks are already running twice a week so changing one day to recycling won’t add pollution. But, people driving to the recycling center adds pollution.

If we recycle most of our trash we would have more land and less trash to throw away. The landfill would last longer.

I think we should recycle some of the trash in Minot after the flood. The flood caused a lot of trash. We should recycle what we can.

Let’s change one trash day to a recycling day.
