Demand For Plastic Projected To Rise Through 2010
Recycling Today has an article about a report which was recently released telling of the projected rise in plastic use in the US through 2010. The report predicts that PET plastic will take over as the #1 plastic by 2010 with HPDE plastic still holding 43% of the market. Overall they predict a 4.6% rise per year in the use of plastic.
This could mean that we will have a 4.6% increase per year in the amount of plastic litter as well.
