As someone who grew up and lived in PA until 2 years ago, I always found myself in opposition to PA's aggressive stance on recycling; to me, it's always seemed like a modern-day version of the medieval church's sale of indulgences = pre-paying to atone for sins in this life in order to ensure forgiveness in the next. Having had the benevolent influence of some great leaders in PA's Boy Scout Troop 57, we were taught that creating waste and then foisting it into others' hands wasn't good for the environment.
Seeing how [first] China put a stop to that Western offloading and now SE Asian countries like Malaysia doing same, IMHO it now seems like PA should reopen our dump and bear its proper waste footprint:
