    Because we are living in the 21st Centrury. Several other countries recycle everything. No waste. No pollution.

    The problem in the USA with trash is that not many people are willing to rinse out cans/bottles or seperate their garbage.

    Most of our garbage dump sites are located next to our rivers. Many people just haul their trash off and dump it on other people's property. Out of site, out of mind.

    Most of our recycling companies only recycle aluminum, certain plastics, glass and newspapers.

    We are a wasteful country.

    Even now with all the illegal immigrants & homelessness, the state of California has made public urination & defication legal. People are literally peeing & pooping on sidewalks, storefronts, doorways etc. Those who live like that will cause Typhoid, Bubonic Plague and other diseases to flourish.

    It saves on energy and on raw materials. The savings are particularly striking with aluminum. Even with other materials, it pays. I remember spending days testing different packages for wet wipes, in an effort to find one that could save one or two grams of plastic per box. It paid. This was for Scott Paper, where the three Rs were "Reduce, Recycle, and Replant". If you think about the company's best-known product, you will see why they changed it from "Reuse".

    Because the companies spewing billions of gallons of waste onto our planet every day need us to feel as though we should be the ones feeling guilty.  In reality, most of what you recycle winds up in the trash anyway, while the recycling the remaining portion creates so much waste that you'd literally be better off burying it in a dump.
