    Single use items like bottles can be dealt with via deposit-return systems.
    In Germany, when you buy something in a single-use bottle, it costs 25 cents more than the actual price.
    If you return the bottle (nearly every store has a reverse-vending machine for that purpose), you get the 25 cents back.
    Pretty simple, but very effective system.

    China refused to recycle US trash after Trump increased the border taxes and they returned the containers... It's been going on since 2018.

    Posting a similar comment from someone else: Why don't we just use them to build a wall that trump wants? Just compress them even further to durability and then add... idk treated plywood to box it in? You now have building blocks, a couple of thick nails and we have a cheap source of building material. Although it might not last long, we have plenty of trash to go around anyway.

    It's the American way! Live without consequences. That's how u get ahead. Steal the land, use other humans to build the land.....and then destroy the land with unnatural products. Problem is EVERYTHING has consequences. The chickens are coming home to roost!

    holy smokes the coment section is a mixture of american self hatred and moral grandstanding. Funny how Trevor lets asian countries completely of the hook. These countries dump the trash in the rivers and oceans, but apearently we in the west are responsible for that because we trusted them in properly recycling our trash. If anything, we handle trash the best. In my country, the Neterlands, we also deal with the trash of brazil and other south american countries. Countries where trash is piled up next to the street. But go ahead, blame us some more.
