Major challenges to the recycling industry are varied and many. As the previous answer indicates, one such challenge is figuring out how to use recycled materials in the new items. Paper is a little easier to do this with because most often, recycled paper is turned into more paper. However, sourcing recycled aluminum for new cans or recycled plastic for new things can be harder, and these materials often only have a few chances because not everyone recycles.

Another major challenge that the recycling industry faces, specifically in the United States, is that not everyone has access to reliable recycling pickup. Some cities offer it free with their trash pick up, giving residents an incentive to recycle. Other cities charge for recycling pick up or don’t offer it at all.

The following are some of the challenges to the recycling industry. There is some reluctance about buying goods that are recycled, even though these must meet the same quality standards as non-recycled. The complexity of design caused by using recycled materials increases production expense.

There is a view that recycling is misguided. For instance, that in using recycled goods the businesses who produce new are badly affected. Sadly, one of the reasons is laziness. In some places, residents refuse to carry their recyclables 'all the way' from their house to the pavement.
