How can we improve plastic recycling ?

Hi everyone!
I am student in plastics engineering and am interested in plastics recycling.
As you probably know, the most popular drawback of plastic is that it’s very polluting. The problem is that so much people just throw up plastics scraps into nature, or put it in the ordinary bin, whereas plastic can be recycled. Nowadays, plastic recycling has been well improved and we should continue on that way.
So, I’m looking for ideas which could be developed to encourage people to sort plastic to recycle them in the most optimum way.
Thank you in advance for your responses.

  • Jan 7 2014: Isn't there some woman in choina who is among the richest in the world, who made her fortune thru recycling?

    How about asking HER how to best recycle! That will give us an idea ofhow much money can be made (the profit).

    Then make recucling mandatory! If some company or entrepreneur decides that riches are to be made, it will happen!

    Everythin g is driven by the bottom line.
