How many years have we been recycling plastic for money?

    I depends on who you mean by “we”.  The first state to mandate a recycling program was Rhode Island in 1986.  By 1990 37 other states had similar programs.  The tricky thing about plastics is that they have to be classified into 7 different categories – so tracking “plastic” in general is more like tracking “plastic(s)” and thus the information can become befuddled.
