From engineering application to everyday use, plastics provide many benefits such as strength, durability and convenience of use. Ironically, it was these same properties that have made plastics such a problem in the waste stream. Each year, forty-six billion pound of plastic material is produced, but only three percent of that material is recycled; the remainders usually become permanent residents at landfill . Littering not only threatens wildlife and marine life, but also damages the aesthetic environment. Besides littering, other improper disposal method included burning and burying where both release harmful or toxic pollutant to the environment.
