Laborers can be seen working in a plastic recycling factory in Canning Town, West Bengal. Plastic recycling is the process of recovering scrap or waste plastic and reprocessing the material into useful products. Since the vast majority of plastic is non-biodegradable, recycling is a part of global efforts to reduce plastic in the waste stream, especially waste plastic that enters the Earth's ocean. This helps to reduce the high rates of plastic pollution.
