I think it should be the opposite to add a collection fees for those who collect instead of paying a CRV tax which means people are likely to throw their glass bottles or plastic bottles in the trash and not the recycle, really does nothing but means paying a tax to pollute.

Materials Recycling Facilities, is only barely touched on. Dirty MERFs should be a requirement and they should be held accountable for recycling rates of minimum of 75%. As a nation we are terrible recyclers at a rate of 25% as compared with 85% in Germany, and most European nations meeting above 50-60%.
