In an attempt to encourage residents to recycle glass, aluminum, and paper waste, the mayor of Townsville plans to establish specially designated drop-off centers to which residents can bring these materials for recycling. The mayor argues that the increased recycling will significantly reduce the town's ecological impact on natural resources.

Which of the following, if true, indicates that the plan to establish specially designated recycling centers will not have the effect that the mayor intends?

A. The delivery of the materials from the drop-off centers to the appropriate recycling plants will involve considerable expense for the town.
B. In order to occupy unused city-owned property, the drop-off centers will be such a great distance from the town's population centers as to discourage use.
C. Similar centers established in other towns have been ineffective in reducing the amount of waste produced by the towns.
D. Recent technological advances have provided many new uses for recycled aluminum and glass.
E. Many of the proposed centers will be open only at those times calculated to be the most popular with town residents.

B imo, because if the drop-off center doesn't get used by people living in the most populated places of this particular town, the impact of creating this center will be low.

I chose B over C as it is more specific for this particular town and the strong argument that most of the town's citizens won't use the drop-off center.

So lets see out of A and B, i had to weaken the plan that establishing specially designated drop-off centers to which residents can bring these materials for recycling wont be enough to encourage residents to recycle glass, aluminum, and paper waste.

The point is about encouragement.

B. In order to occupy unused city-owned property, the drop-off centers will be such a great distance from the town's population centers as to discourage use.
So if the distance of drop off point will be more, nobody will be that happy to go and drop the waste.

A. The delivery of the materials from the drop-off centers to the appropriate recycling plants will involve considerable expense for the town.
This went ahead the scope of the argument(

Always remain in the scope of the argument

)

C. Similar centers established in other towns have been ineffective in reducing the amount of waste produced by the towns.
Other towns - Irrelevant

D. Recent technological advances have provided many new uses for recycled aluminum and glass.
Strengthening the plan

E. Many of the proposed centers will be open only at those times calculated to be the most popular with town residents.
Most popular town residents -> Irrelevant
