Is it easier to recycle plastic soda bottles or aluminum cans?

    Both plastic and aluminum take an excruciatingly long time to break down in a landfill, so it is necessary to recycle both materials.  However, plastic absolutely must be recycled, as one cannot burn it, for it would pollute the air.  However, it is much easier to recycle aluminum, because there is only one form of it, so when you recycle it, you’re just recycling it back into one aluminum thing or another.  Plastic, however, comes in so many different forms (think of the numbering system on the bottoms of plastic packaging) that it makes it difficult to recycle.

    Aluminum recycles more easily than plastic as aluminum is more easily made into other products or containers. Overall, plastic is much worse for the environment than aluminum.
