What is more difficult to recycle cardboard or plastic or plastic and aluminum?
Plastic is the hardest material to recycle on earth because: 1: Plastic has to be separated into many different kinds by hand 2: If a mixture of plastic is not recycled together they either contaminate the melt or you get a lower grade of plastic than the originals. This is called "downcucling". 3: Plastics need more energy to recycle than any other materials

What plastic can be melted and reshaped when heated?
Into what what things can you recycle plastics?
You can recycle plastic into anything. If something can be made out of plastic in the first place, then you can make any plastic object melt down and mold it into a new shape. That is WHY plastic is such cool stuff in the first place. Sanitary regulations require that if you want to make NEW plastic bottles out of old, used plastic, then you have to put two layers of NEW, UNUSED plastic around the center layer of OLD plastic, so that people don't have any way of contacting the "possibly contaminated" old plastic with their bare fingers or with the beverage in the container. Other than that, the sky is the limit. Very nice park benches have been made out of plastic milk bottles, for instance. They don't rot or break down, and the benches use up hundreds of milk bottles.

Usually by separating their waste into different categories: food and other organic litter, paper and carton, plastic and cans... and throwing them away grouped together and not all mixed up into the right specific container, instead of dumping all their rubbish into one bag and leaving it just anywhere.

How to Make a Plastic Bag Organizer?
When we go shopping for groceries, we take our plastic bags and place them into another plastic bag when we get home. We re-use these plastic bags as trash can liners and other things. The problem is that the plastic bag holding all these plastic bags is usually hung in a cupboard, and elsewhere, getting bulkier as we stuff even more plastic bags in it. Wouldn't it be nice to be able to organize these plastic bags into a more convenient container? The following steps are going to show you how you can make your own plastic bag organizer. Step 1: You will need the following items. • An empty disinfectant wipes container. • Your plastic bags • Scrap book paper, or gift wrapping paper. Step 2: Remove the top from the disinfectant wipes container. Step 3: Clean out any residue inside the disinfectant wipes container, and remove the label from the container. Step 4: Take your plastic bags and put them inside the container. Step 5: Pull one of the plastic bags part way through the opening on the lid of the container. Step 6: Place lid back onto container and close flap. Step 7: Using the scrap book paper or the gift wrapping paper, wrap the container with the paper and glue into place. Add whatever other decorations you want such as bows, ribbons, etc. You now have a convenient, cost-effective storage container for your plastic bags. You can use several disinfectant containers to make these plastic bag organizers for your office, and even keep one in your car. Not only are you recycling the plastic bags from the grocery store, but you are also reusing the plastic containers the disinfectant wipes came in, therefore reducing the amount of waste in our landfills.
