Is recycling a waste?  Something that politicians should cut out to save money?

Per ABC news, it might be.

"Glass, metal and plastic recycling costs New York $240 per ton, almost double what it costs to just throw it away. "

"the next 1,000 years-worth of trash would only fill a 35-square mile landfill that is 100 yards deep."
