Empty plastic bottles get delivered to the recycling plant by trucks.

The main problem the company faces today is shortage of raw material and insufficient support of the city administration.

These granules are the end product of the company. They are used to produce plastic bottles.

      Some consumer product recycling is good and cost effective. Paper products (newspapers/cardboard) are not. Paper must be de-inked using harsh chemicals which creates a toxic sludge, high energy consumption and recycled paper products and usually inferior in quality. Aluminum is easy and less expensive to recycle with no difference in quality of end product. Plastic and glass recycling is very labor intensive.

      The only material that has been cost effective to recycle is aluminum. All others due to labor costs, processing costs, and end product value and quality, drain economies and negatively impact the environment.

        Lets not forget the original recyclable, iron! Ferrous materials have been recycled since Egytian times.
        As to the ‘costs’ of recycling, the opponents have been careful to understate the public benefits while overstating those expenses. They also ‘spin’ the truth against recycling. If the entire process is considered, recycling paper is actually beneficial to society. Unfortunately, it lowers the revenue of the paper company.

        Whose labour costs?

        Labour costs a lot less in certain parts of the world (e.g. Russia as compared to Western Europe or North America) which can make it cost-effective.
