PS, PP and PVC is being recycled in my country? I googled a few articles and they all say it is possible to recycle PP and PVC. Why wouldn’t they recylce these plastics like u are saying?

Is there a way that legislation can be introduced to place a deposit on water bottles? In Michigan there is a 10 cent refundable deposit placed on soda and alcohol containers. these containers have a 98% recovery rate.
