I am not sure that either party is really in touch with the waste industry, but , the Republican party is more attuned to business needs in general.
Most people will probably indicate that the Democrats are attuned to these interests, but if we don't have a change of administration that gets the U.S. back working again, and rebuilding our industries, the recycling industry will flounder just like everything else. If manufacturing is depressed, which it is, then goods and services are also depressed, which results in less generation of waste and recyclables, which is a major industry in the U.S. Democrats will talk it, but the Republicans will do it!
The environment is the least of the Republican party's concerns.
Democrats seem more interested in environmental protection and supporting renewable energy; recyling is better alligned with this sentiment; local governments play an important role in waste management and recycling. The republican posture of anti-governemnt stances tends to generally undermine the likely strength of local governments and their ability to support efforts related to recycling enhancement.
The Democrats will give more handouts and incentives to the recycling industry and will regulate more the e-waste leading to more e-waste recycling. The Republicans will give the tax-paying public a break by letting the waste and recycling industries compete with each other with little or no government assistance, which may not be in the best interests of this industry.
I agree with you.
Less government, less regulation, less taxes means more opportunities for waste management businesses.
Neither part has our true interests at hear!!!!
