Reward those who recycle regularly (property tax credit)

Reward recycling by citizens with a corresponding reduction or credit in tax (property).


It is simple enough to request receipts for recycling pickup (by weight) and to collect and turn these in each year for a credit to property tax.


Considering the amount of municipal waste generated by citizens, this would go a long way toward not only reducing long-term waste management and disposal needs (and funding!) but contribute significantly to environmental stabilization and improvements.
