The effort by San Francisco to remove plastic water bottles (and also plastic bags) from the waste stream is just a first baby step. As I witnessed in Central and South America (and in Spain and Portugal), this is how much of the world handles their waste problem. Most of this garbage is plastic. In my travels, I was often nauseated by the smoldering piles of plastic along roadsides.
