  • WEAL ACTION ALERT AB-40/SB-27 Budget & Recycling     WEAL is asking you to contact Governor Walker and your State Legislators tomorrow, Monday, April 4, 2011, regarding AB-40/SB-27, the proposed Budget Bill which eliminates the recycling mandate and ends recycling grants.   The state will continue collecting a $7.00 per ton "recycling fee" for landfilling garbage. However, these funds will no longer be directed to grants for community recycling programs. Under the proposed budget, the money will be going into a new economic development fund.   WEAL does not believe it is fair for communities to pay recycling fees at landfills when the money will not benefit recycling.   Suggested Action: Please contact Governor Walker and your Legislators tell them you do not support the proposed changes.   Let them know recycling preservers resources, conserves energy, limits dependence on landfills, creates jobs, contributes to economic development and is an effective method for communities to reduce disposal costs.   Contact Governor Walker at:  (608) 266-1212 email: [email protected].   To find your Legislators go to:  http://legis.wisconsin.gov/w3asp/waml/waml.aspx  Charlene Lemoine Waste Issues Representative Waukesha County Environmental Action League (WEAL) 04/03/2011
