This photo is not a very original or artistic idea, but recycling PLASTIC is one way to contribute to multiple disciplines and efforts to save our planet and reduce the "greenhouse" effect.
Each type of PLASTIC is marked by a number inside the triangular recycling symbol. The number indicates the type of resin used in the manufacture of PLASTIC.
Recycling PLASTIC in US requires separating recyclables by number and by color. This process is somewhat labor intensive.
After sorting the PLASTIC(s) are transported to a recycling center, or some communities provide curbside pickup.
Unfortunately, the pictured recyclables are headed for the landfill, because the owner would have to transport them over 30 miles, burning more gasoline which also contributes to the greenhouse effect.
Sometimes decisions to recycle are burdened by opposing decisions. Which is the wisest choice?
