It's now semi-enforced in the town in which I reside. I was told that all plastic and glass items can't just be tossed in the regular trash (what's left but paper?). I sorted my trash already anyway, but it's interesting to see that my town is changing and improving that way. It makes me happy to see, despite my roommate's protests about rise in taxes and whatever else he was ranting about. I'll have to research more about that, but I don't think it's so bad.
