Recently, recycling has become a general concern [ factual error]. (It is sometimes argued)[ passive/redundant] that making [wrong word ] laws should be the only way for governments to encourage waste recycling. In my view, strict requirements set by the [article error ]authorities do have many advantages.

[lack of transitory word ]The[artile error ] law [ inconsistency/you used ‘laws’] ensures the efficiency of recycling. [ loss of organic connection from the prior sentence/Subject of a sentence should echo the subject/object of the prior sentence]Complex types of household waste lead to the [lack of modifier ]unwillingness to recycle. [ missing transitory word]Legislation, as a mandatory measure, has a stronger warning and supervisory effect. Under the supervision of it[unclear pronoun ], every family will take the initiative to recycle more garbage. Once people (get into) [incorrect/informal ] the habit of recycling, it becomes a second nature[ unclear]. As a result, the phenomenon of delaying and refusing reduces[ unclear]. The wide distribution of domestic waste also makes it difficult to recycle. [ loss of organic transaction]Only through laws can this problem be effectively overcome. [ loss of organic transaction]Local governments arrange the work in[ wrong preposition] the guidance of regulations to make sure that all wastes can be recycled.

The law not only plays a restrictive[ wrong word/word disposition] role but also exerts its influence on education.

They will lay[wrong word ] more emphasis on sustainable development, so[article error ] waste of resources will decrease in the future.

In conclusion, legal means must be required[ passive] in order to tackle the waste problem. Governments should play their part in looking after the environment and limited resources.
