Pay Them What They’re Worth

A lot can be recycled and made to serve again.

Some things are so polluted they must remain unseen.


An honest judge determines the final fate of each.

“Where there remains some value, don’t toss it in a ditch.”


Pollutants must be processed. They can’t be “thrown away”.

It may not be tomorrow, but they’ll come back some day. 


Be thankful for the workers, who do the dirty work.

Provide them soap and water, and pay them what they’re worth.
