Recycling is one of the most important actions currently available to reduce these impacts and represents one of the most dynamic areas in the plastics industry today. While plastics have been recycled since the 1970s, the quantities that are recycled vary geographically, according to plastic type and application. Approximately 50 per cent of plastics are used for single-use disposable applications, such as packaging, agricultural films and disposable consumer items, between 20 and 25% for long-term infrastructure such as pipes, cable coatings and structural materials, and the remainder for durable consumer applications with intermediate lifespan, such as in electronic goods, furniture, vehicles, etc.

Effectively recycling plastic is very hard and tends to be expensive, PRIMARILY because there are so many DIFFERENT kinds of plastic and no one has an EFFECTIVE FOOL-PROOF way of separating them so that they can be cost-effectively recycled. Whenever you have a mixture of non-compatible plastics (common because of above), the whole batch is basically non-recyclable with current technology. So far I have seen nothing to ameliorate the problem.

Bull S***. Plastic can fully be recycled.
Plastic recycling is the process of recovering scrap or waste plastic and reprocessing the material into useful products. ... After this stage, it can then be used to make items of any sort such as plastic chairs and tables. Soft plastics are also recycled such as polyethylene film and bags.

Apparently you know NOTHING about the thousands of different plastics out there. Before you make a fool of yourself you ought to educate yourself.

Well it is True that some Plastic are worse than the others and hence much more harder to recycle. But in fact that provides an opportunity to do further good for your Country, for your People, that is by replacing Bad Plastic with Good Plastic which in fact can be 100% recycled and recycled with much less energy.
Here is examples of such:

So as you see we can make our Country/World better by just

using our God given Brain and Imagination and not be instead filled with Hate and Ignorance that is pouring out of Trump and Ultra Fake News of Fox, CNBC, etc. that makes these vile people possible.

So Lux Report is right, we just need to replace Bad Plastic with Good Plastic. Just as we need to replace our Bad Government and Media with Good Government and Media to have a much better Country & World.

Cheers :)

How can we effectively do plastic recycling, is by recycling it here in USA in Modern Environmentally sound, means having Zero impact on Environment, recycling plants. Which requires Taxing the Wall Street pals of Trump to spend Billions on building such ultra modern ultra clean recycling plants.
I mean think how stupid and waste of energy, and hence the Environment it is, to load all this trash into containers, ship them across the pacific Ocean to China and then unload them for recycling in modern plants there! What kind of a Government that had dropped the ball on a Nation would do such a thing!

I see Salivator is still salivating. Instead of answering the OP's question with a real world solution, he goes off on a rant that solves NOTHING. What a waste of electricity, band width, and humanity (assuming that Salivator is human and not a bot).

Dave, has 100% answered the OPs question. Yet the Trump Republican lunatic of mmerlinn thinks this is a rant "that solves NOTHING". After all quoting from DS, he has given 100% solution by stating the FACT:
"How can we effectively do plastic recycling, is by recycling it here in USA in Modern Environmentally sound, means having Zero impact on Environment, recycling plants. Which requires Taxing the Wall Street pals of Trump to spend Billions on building such ultra modern.."

Amazing!

Deporter is still delusional. Salivator gave the ideal end result, BUT NO MEANS ON HOW TO GET THERE, so he did NOT answer the OP's question.

As of now, I see no way to get to Salivator's end result, which is what most of us want, but which none of us will get by pontificating and doing nothing.

I suggest that both Deporter & Salivator put their money where their mouths are & build workable recycling plants to show us how to do it. Oops, forgot, their food stamps are insufficient.

Reporter, thanks for stating the obvious that I have indeed provided solid actionable answer to OP.

MM, I gave you as solid a plan as one can give in such discussion forum, that is again:
1- TAX Trumps Wall Street Billionaire pals to fund the creation of clean recycling plants here
2- Build clean clean recycling plants here

For further funding of such project, STOP wasting our Tax Money on giving FREE Military to the Richer European Union and instead invest that Money here in USA.

Salivator, subsidizing the building of anything is never the solution. Sooner or later it all goes tits up and we are even worse off with no money left to resolve the problem.

Build recycling plants here is the answer but until the technical issues are resolved it is a total waste of money.

So, all you have done is restate the obvious which does NOTHING to answer the OP's question. Unless the OP is dumber than you are (not likely) he ALREADY knew the obvious.

As far as Europe is concerned, that money is wasted.

However, you REALLY do not want Europe to rearm themselves. If that happens and another 'Hitler' appears on the scene, he could and probably would seize the military and start another World War just like Hitler did.

Just for kicks you might want to watch Karl Theodor von- und zu-Guttenberg during the next few years. He appears to be a 'sleeper' to me.
