I have, however, compiled an extensive bibliography on why people recycle,
which I would be glad to send at no cost.

For background information, both in my state, in my county and in my city,
recycling has incredibly strong support, and I have not personally seen any
weakening of that support. In fact, our state legislature just adopted some
measures that indicate an even stronger support than what existed a few
years ago.
