At the same time, we rely more and more on a new measure of recycling capacity: the rate of recycling, that is, given a kind of packaging, and then count the percentage of consumers using styrofoam recycling projects.

At the same time, the recovery rate increased but the actual recycling rate is significantly lower regeneration.

For example ,PET bottles, appointed by the American Chemical Society, a study showed that 94% of U.S.A. consumers use recycling project to recycled PET bottles, then we find the rate of Styrofoam recycling is 94%.

However, the EPA estimates that only 31% of the PET bottles were recycled. So, Americans can be recycled PET bottles, but they chose not to do so.

Why would consumers prefer to throw recyclable waste into the garbage bin rather than spend seemingly small time and energy in the recycling bin? Why were recycling projects so difficult to start? Consumers do not pay attention to recycling it?
