Figures from 2005 seem to disagree with your statement. There has been an upward trend of recycling throughout the history of recycling in the USA. Figures from 2005 show that Americans recycled 2% more waste than in the previous year. This is very encouraging. I have found no reports or reasons to believe that people are recycling less, and thank your chosen God for that. We need to increase our recycling, increase our waste reduction, and increase our awareness of the waste issues that still face our overflowing landfills, and the landfills of the world. There are islands dedicated to storing and burning the waste of tourists in the Maldives. There are floating garbage patches in the middle of our Oceans, things have got to change.
The first photo is the floating garbage patch in the Pacific Ocean, which is twice the size of Texas, and the second in the man-made garbage island of Thilafushi near Male, a tourist site in the Maldives (the smoke is burning plastics and garbage, which seeps it’s toxic plumes into the surrounding ocean).
I agree with freedomtoast that recycling is on the rise since 10 years ago. Recycling is becoming more and more mainstream everyday, especially with big media names on the bandwagon now. We still have a long way to go though, but with continued emphasis on green living, recycling will just be a normal part of our everyday activities.
