The problems associated with recycling are either technical or economical.  Plastics are difficult to recycle because of the different types of polymer resins used in their production. Since each type has its own chemical makeup different plastics cannot be recycled together. Thus separation of different plastics before recycling is necessary.  Similarly in recycled paper the fibers are weakened and it is difficult to control the colour/
