When did we start plastic recycling?



  1. 0 Votes

    In the 1940s Americans were recycling Nylon along with several other materials to support the war and provide materials for the troops. However, this was part of the war effort and was not an option for most American households. It was not until the 1960s and ’70s that the idea gained popularity as part of the environmental movement of those decades. Plastic recycling slowly matriculated into everyday American life after a few years of struggle. It became widely used in the late 1980s and early 1990s.
