Which nations have an abundance of plastic / aluminum beverage consumption, but little to no recycling infrastructure?

    Basically any under-developed country has this problem. South Africa is on the verge of creating an infrastructure with limited facilities and pick-up available. One of the problems is that many people just can’t be bothered. Living in an under-developed nation provides its own litany of daily problems for its inhabitants, some of whom are simply unaware of the option to recycle. Haiti has launched a program called Ramase Lajan, which means literally “picking up money off the ground.” Due to the enormous amounts of consumables (1,500 TONS of NEW plastic every MONTH, in a nation the size of Ohio) in recyclable materials that are imported to the country, there is a high demand for re-use. Haiti hopes this program will create jobs and a sustainable industry for their nation.
