                Nothing wrong with it. Just that recycling isn’t as magical everyone makes it out to be. Plastic is usually ground into pellets and crushed into patio planks. Probably shit for the environment as they degrade and release micro plastics everywhere.

                NTA but recycled steel is normally re-melted, reprocessed etc. They don’t just hit an old hunk of steel with a hammer until it’s the new shape they want

                No of course they don't mean just aluminum. Metal is the easiest thing of all to recycle. Each type behaves differently at temperatures making it easy to separate and smelt them down again.
                Even glass has issues with keeping it pure and plastic is even worse but metal is simple.

                Yes. It's also very widely recycled. Every metals yard I've ever been to will buy nearly any metal but by far the biggest volume is steel. They have specialized cranes with huge electromagnets on them to pick it up and move it around the yard. Wrecked cars, appliances, old machinery, scrap material and worn-out parts from business, etc...that all gets melted down and recycled because it's worth cash money.

        It's just a way for corporations to blame us for their problems and then make us do a time consuming humiliation ritual while they laugh all the way to the bank. Also it gives delusional liberal normies a "I'm helping and I'm better than you!" attitude which is like cocaine to them.

        I'm not the guy you're replying to, but it's very easy to sort out the bullshit from the truth when it comes to recycling. When recycling makes sense people will buy the waste from you for cash. The best example of this is metal, scrapyards buy if from you buy the pound. But other materials have value as well, i.e. farmers buy manure to use as fertilizer, sawdust can be used to make various construction materials like OSB or MDF, used to make fuel pellets for heating, etc.
        But when people aren't paying for the waste? That's a clear sign the 'recycling' doesn't make any sense. In fact, if the recycling costs more money than using new material that is a clear sign the recycling process is actually more wasteful in that incidence.

        I wish we could return them to the ammunition manufacturer

        Why? Think about how much energy and therefore pollution it would cost to transport those things back to the ammo manufacturer. That is worse than just making a new one from a little more plastic. Ask yourself which has more environmental harm:
        A) Make another plastic ammo thingie and throw it away in a landfill
        B) Make the plastic ammo thinigie, then have someone mail it back to the factory. Once it gets to the factory someone has to unpack it and do something with the packaging waste. That's probably not easy to recycle since it's likely a combination of plastic (tape and glue) and paper. They then have to sort out the rejects (broken, dirty, etc) and organize the good ones so they are ready for use.

          I work in an industrial 66 ton mold press clean room. The plastic we need to use has to be super pure or it fricks up the machine. Even offgassing resins from other builds will mess up our builds if air quality is left unchecked. At best, if your plastic was not mixed up will a million poly-xs and resins that would ruin any hopes of effective product, they'd still have to be cleaned and processed with extra machinery first and its just cheaper to ship it to Southeast Asia where it sits in toxic landfills. I'd recommend looking into paper pulp products if you want to go green.

          I don't doubt how complicated the logistics and processes are. It's more of a fleeting thought that comes to me whenever I throw one in the trash, or any plastic in that case, being that it'll never truly decompose. It's part of a bigger, worldwide problem anyway so it's not like I can do anything about it. Oh well.

      What the hell, in my country they use plastic trash as fuel for cement factories. Shit burns well and incredibly hot (it's made from oil after all), just dumping it into the ocean or shipping it to SEA is kinda stupid from an economical perspective because it's free fuel.

      The reason we don't burn trash in the US is because the EPA are cutthroat c**ts about air pollution. You can blame the smog in the 70s and 80s for out moronic air pollution laws It ha some benefits (we have pretty good air quality compared to our peers, especially outside urban centers) but it comes at the cost of having to bury all our trash.

        there's a few counties in America that actually use a waste to energy facility instead of a garbage dump. local one near me has received multiple awards from the epa for reduction of pollution and sustainability. heck, even the local college recognizes the facility as a hallmark of sustainability as it ensures that the area set aside for a garbage dump is filled in one hundred years instead of just ten.
        it's waste product is a chemically inert and near useless ash and the waste pollutants are less than 1% of what they could be.

            you used to return most glass bottles not for recycling, but to be refilled and reused. it still happens in some places but it's fallen by the wayside as things go from local to national/global distribution.

            When it's done now it's about a general attitude rather than cost savings. They wouldn't 'recycle' the customers trash, they'd slot them straight into new production after a clean and start advertising about how environmentally friendly they were

              Its because its cheaper to just make new glass and everyone caught on. Most of your recycled stuff ends up in landfills or an ocean too by the way.

                Glass is falling out of favor because it's heavy which increases shipping costs. Plastic is so popular because it's much cheaper to ship. And it's not just weight, it's the size too. 20oz plastic soda bottles look like picrel when they are shipped to the bottling plant. When they are made they are made small but extra-thick. The machine which fills the bottles expands them to the full size just before filling them. Imagine how much less fuel it takes to ship a million of those to the plant vs. a million glass bottles?

        I want to return them so that they can be reused for new ammunition being shipped out but more specifically to keep plastic out of landfills/ocean. I'm sure the manufacturers don't give a fug about that though
