At the University of Indiana, they produced a report known as the A Macroeconomic Study of Federal and State Automotive Regulations. Here is an excerpt relating to consumer fuel savings: “Vehicles powered by electricity may save a consumer roughly $5,700 to $7,400 over the period of ownership on fuel. Buyers may have a perception regarding fuel costs that do not reflect federal agency projections. Most buyers do not plan on retaining a newly purchased automobile for its entire useful lifespan. These cars can last for approximately 13 – 15 years and most buyers keep cars for 6 to 7 years and then consider trading it in when ready to buy again.

In the 1970s period during the oil embargo, Chrysler tried introducing two models which were “ultra-efficient”, the Feather Duster and the Dart Lite. They did not have great success with these models at the time. During the 1990s, Honda remained focused on offering fuel efficient vehicles compared to their competitors. Although difficult to quantify, it did not seem that Honda truly benefitted from their enhanced fuel efficiency and have since not focused on MPG as much. In other countries where fuel costs are much higher, they have persisted in leading the market in this category. Studies have difficulty proving that U.S. consumers are highly motivated to buy cars based exclusively on fuel efficiency; however, time will probably tell as more of these vehicles enter the market at comparable prices to traditionally powered cars.

Ohio Struggling with Recycling

When deciding where to scrap a car in Franklin County, be sure to check that the recycler is an advocate for the environment.

An October 2016 article in The Courier by Denise Grant states: “Lorain County’s recycling program, which includes the recycling of glass bottles, is common for Ohio, according to the state EPA. The focus is the public’s resolve to recycle in the first place, according to Keith Bailey, the existing director of the Lorain County Solid Waste District, a veteran of over thirty years in the industry. There are places for both private and public sectors in environmental recycling. In Hancock County, the recycling program’s first, Litter Landing, is running at a $300K annual loss. It has an archaic baler for cardboard and plastics; works with an aging glass crusher; and annually ships roughly 200 tons of various glass products over to Pennsylvania. Mixed glass rides along for free because it has zero value.

Litter Landing isn’t accepting glass anymore and Hancock County’s recycling program is on life-support. With residents totaling 300,000, nearly (4) times that of Hancock County, Lorain County (LC) handled 5,234 tons of glass in 2014.  LC’s solid waste coordination plan is more than just gathering junk in a bin for shipping elsewhere. A good plan is said to be the best starting point for making adjustments. There is a theory that we’re making money selling recyclables. Many of the recycleable material needs be subsidized. Most of LC’s recycling is done with mobile roll-off bins, with materials processed by private companies. The county facilitates all hazardous waste, as the private sector has been reluctant to do so. LC officials have been occupied with the EPA to find a major glass processor, like Rumpke Consolidated Companies, which is a bit closer (in Dayton). Fees which are collected by the Hancock County Landfill are purposed to balance out recycling losses.  Glass is just difficult to handle and costs labor. A tractor-trailer load of clean brown or clear glass has value of only $200.

EPA officials Marie Barnett, Ernie Stall & Chet Chaney talked about resuming glass recycling, but growing it to include bottles from businesses. Rumpke is one of the US’ bigger privately-held waste recyclers. They are capable of handling 80,000 tons of glass annually. They could offer a market for Hancock County’s glass & limit handling concerns.   In 2014, Litter Landing had operating expenses totaling $436,930.   In 2015, the deficit nearly doubled.” The complete article can be viewed at http://thecourier.com/local-news/2016/10/01/state-epa-to-evaluate-county-recycling-program/
