Is CT's goal to divert 60% of its waste through recycling smart public policy?

If the residents are willing to pay for it. It's environmentally good policy and it needs to be economically sustainable

Probably not,since Corrupticut does not enforce the recycling laws it now has.This is just grandstanding to no avail except to look good.

Most of this will end up in landfills or incinerated anyway at high cost. Modern engineered landfills are inexpensive and significant energy recovery from self generated methane is typical.

Then what?

Yes it is however with China reducing the amount of recycled materials it will accept it might make it impossible to reach this goal without finding new outsource locations.

Yes-And giving folks financial rewards for clean, useable recycling (like is currently done with bottles/cans)should be explored.

As long as there are markets in which to sell the recycled waste. Otherwise, it is a better use to incinerate the waste and produce energy.
