Obiadi, Bons N "The Positive Impact of Plastic Recycling in the Built Environment, Architecture and the Waters of the World" Published in International Journal of Trend in Scientific Research and Development (ijtsrd), ISSN: 2456-6470, Volume-4 | Issue-5, August 2020, pp.1427-1435, URL: https://www.ijtsrd.com/papers/ijtsrd33134.pdf

One of the ever present facts of human existence is the generation of wastes. Collection and disposal of these wastes, which are mostly plastics have always been major concerns of societies for both health and economic reasons. Every hour, Americans use 2.5 million plastic bottles, most of which are thrown away. About 9.1% of plastic production was recycled in the U.S. during 2015 although, varying by product category. Plastic packaging was recycled at 14.6%, plastic durable goods at 6.6%, and other non-durable goods at 2.2%. Currently, 25 percent of plastic waste is recycled in Europe, Americans recycled 3.14 million tons of plastics in 2015, down from 3.17 million in 2014. It is the primary aim of this article to draw attention to the benefits of recycling plastics and how it is helping in keeping the built environment healthy. The instrument of more than two research strategies; quantitative and qualitative research methods and their tactics were used. Secondary data were based on direct observation and relevant documents from previous studies on the related matter. Plastic recycling faces many challenges, ranging from mixed plastics to hard-to-remove residues. The cost-effective and efficient recycling of the mixed plastic stream is perhaps the biggest challenge facing the recycling industry. With the abundance of empty plastic bottles and soil, most poor communities have embarked on taking advantage of the resources in building comfortable houses for themselves and the use of these resources have helped in keeping the built environment clean.
