Below the fold, so to speak, all the recyclers think the tax is a great idea. Yeah! We'll recycle them!
Of course they would! You just gave them FREE MATTRESSES! And they didn't have to do a thing!
All CA did was take the burden of bearing the cost for collecting all these mattresses just lying around everywhere and placed it on the consumer.
If this were really such a great idea, the recyclers wouldn't need what can only be described as a GOVERNMENT SUBSIDY.
As far as the landfills are concerned, if the state would do the right thing and allow gasification of trash, a huge part of the problem would go away.
Isn't this really just another example of Crony Capitalism?
