10 Reasons Why Not All the Plastic You Recycle Actually Gets Recycled

Lack of Infrastructure: Many regions, particularly in developing countries, do not have the infrastructure in place to collect and process plastic waste.
Economic Viability: Recycling plastic is often more expensive than producing new plastic from raw materials, making it less attractive for businesses.
Complexity of Plastic Types: There are many different types of plastic, each requiring different recycling processes. This complexity makes recycling more difficult and costly.
Contamination: Plastic that is contaminated with food, dirt, or other materials can be difficult to recycle and may be rejected by recycling facilities.
Low-Quality Recycled Plastic: Recycled plastic is often of lower quality than new plastic, making it less useful for many applications.
Consumer Behavior: Many consumers do not properly sort their waste or are not aware of what types of plastic can be recycled, leading to low recycling rates.
Single-Use Culture: Our society's heavy reliance on single-use plastic items contributes to the overwhelming amount of plastic waste, much of which is not recycled.
Inefficient Collection Systems: Not all plastic waste makes it to recycling facilities due to inefficient collection systems.
Lack of Legislation: Without strong laws and regulations to promote plastic recycling, many companies find it easier and cheaper to produce new plastic.
Global Market Forces: Changes in the global market for recycled materials can influence the viability of recycling programs. For example, when China, formerly the world's largest importer of plastic waste, banned the import of many types of plastic in 2018, it disrupted global recycling markets.
