I've got a solution to the recycling problem. Pass a law that says that every company has to accept back any products they provide, when they reach end-of-life. So, for example, retailers would have to accept packaging waste back from customers, and the wholesaler that sold them the product would have to accept it back from them. Internalizing the cost of dealing with waste would motivate companies to make less disposable stuff, and find ways to make it easier to recycle:

@strypey it's not a bad idea, but I don't see anyone taking their dirty plastic wrapping from groceries back into the store when they can just dump it. hardly anyone would bother recycling even as it is if the containers weren't on every corner
