Do you toss biodegradable plastic in the compost bin? Here’s why it might not break downPosted on April 6, 2022 by DrRossH in Plastic Waste News
This is a good start – more effective recycling and recovery of plastics will go a long way to solve the problem.
But some plastics, particularly agricultural plastics and heavily contaminated packaging, will remain difficult to recycle despite these new efforts. These plastics will end up being burnt or in landfill, or worse, leaking into the environment.
We don’t put so much faith on recycling will go a long way to solve this problem. We can’t recycle that much plastic. There is too much being made and few markets for recycled material. It can be more expensive in most cases at the moment and will be for many years yet.
