As early as the 1960s, the United States has carried out extensive research on the recycling of waste plastics. In 2011, the recovery of US consumer waste plastic bottles reached 1.18 million t, an increase of 1.7% (20,000 t) from 2010, indicating that the recovery rate of plastic bottles has reached 28.9%. Since the beginning of the United States in 1990 this statistics, the recovery rate of plastic bottles every year to steadily improve. While the national recycling of waste plastic bottles (including imports of materials) than in 2010 increased by 40,000 t.
Waste PET bottles in 2011, the recycling rate of 728,000 t, the recovery rate of 29.3%. Of which 312,000 t was pressure package exports, accounting for 43% of the recovery bottle. But then imports of waste PET bottles 4.8 million t, therefore, the United States were re-use of waste PET bottles 46.4 million t.
38.3% for the production of chemical fiber, 19.4% for packaging film, 11.5% for packing tape, 23.3% for food bottles, and 5.5% for non-food bottles.


In 2011, the recovery of waste PP (polypropylene) bottles increased by 24% (an increase of nearly 20,000 t), and 64% of them were directly recycled into PP raw materials in the country, rather than mixed with other plastics. Even the PP caps are also universal collection and regeneration, the recent number is still on the rise.
In 2011, the US waste plastic film recycling reached 454,000 t, a record high, compared with 441,000 tons in 2010 increased by 3%. Waste plastic film mainly comes from shopping bags, product packaging and shrink film. 2006 – 2009. More than half of the waste plastic film produced in the United States is exported to overseas. However, in 2010, the situation has reversed, domestic sales reached 53%, more than the export volume.

In recent years, with a large number of China, Latin America, West Asia and other “overseas legions” to join the United States to enter cheap labor and valuable experience and skills, making the United States itself significantly reduce the capacity of waste plastics, a large part of the export volume Into self-digestion.
In 2010, Japan collected a total of 628,000 tons of PET beverage bottles, of which 298,000 t in the country to be recycled, exports to China and other countries 330,000 t. Recycled PET waste bottles in Japan have 172,000 t after crushing and cleaning, to obtain high-quality PET flat sheet renewable raw materials, of which 49% for the production of plastic film, 34% of the production of chemical fiber, 11% for the chemical method ” Bottle to bottle “production.
Japan has been the world’s second largest producer of plastics, although the current plastic production in the United States, China and Germany, but over the years, waste bottle recycling line has been troubled by Japanese serious social problems.
