The Importance of Plastic Recycling

from:


There are a number of things to consider when throwing away the trash these days. Unlike a few hundred years ago, people create more trash that is manufactured than before. Gone are the days of eating meals that don’t incorporate taking plastic wrappings off of each time before heating it. There is a ton of plastic floating around the planet now, and very little of it is being recycled. In fact, plastic makes up about eight percent of the overall waste of the United States. Plastic recycling is very important for this reason..

Unlike most forms of recycling, plastic recycling can be somewhat misconceiving. When recycling plastic, the plastic is kept from the landfills and helps the environment, however this does not prevent the use of virgin materials to make new items, because plastic recyclables are reused, but usually not reformed into new items. This is not necessarily the case with all plastics however.

One great example of plastic recycling would be in recycling soda bottles. This is easy and convenient as most grocery stores have recycling centers to collect the plastic bottles, making plastic recycling just that much easier. Another bonus to this is the financial compensation. Some states are even beginning to accept water bottles to be recycled. Some cities have forced the recycling of plastics on citizens by making it a requirement and may even impose fines for those who do not comply, however it is far from being every city. Some local schools and businesses have also begun plastic recycling.

Plastic is a convenient commodity because it is cheap and easy to manipulate into many different designs. Once it was developed its popularity was immediate and the large amount of plastic waste that it causes when not recycled has grown ever since. When these plastics are improperly disposed of they can lead to environmental hazards. Some plastics, such as those used in certain parts of computers can be toxic. Others are molded in ways that can injure wildlife. The plastic rings that are used to keep soda packs together are often faulted for getting animals stuck within them. Plastic recycling is a great way to avoid all of these potential problems with poor disposal of plastics.

Plastic recycling is not only a great thing to do for the environment, but also a growing necessity in a world where everything is sealed in plastic. In order to help keep the world’s environment in good condition more people are going to have to make an even bigger attempt to continue recycling their plastics and other goods!
