In the long run the very ong run, according to several materials experts recycles everything. The aluminum beer can, dropped on the forest floor this summer, (or example will probably have been broken down into bits of aluminum oxide by the sum- mer of 2472, in tlie estimation of Dr. Edwin L. Owen, a Penn- sylvania State University spe- cialist in corrosion of metals. That is, after 85 years, hall the quantity was gone. It would ake another 85 years for half the remaining quantity to break down. Thus, a piece of PVC would be about 95 per cent degraded by the year 2312 if buried in such soil today. If left on top of tiie ground, il would take much longer. Kammereck noted that problem with the biodegrada- lion of many plastics is that they are made of chemicals that are very similar to some pesticides. Thus, though bac- teria may attack a slyrofoam coffee cup. tliey may release enough toxic chemicals to kill them. Perhaps the least perishable of the commonly thrown-away materials is glass. Prof. Evelyn RECYCLING RATE _ in what he described as only a. a "ballpark" estimate, Owenisalc' a t! e said it would take the tun alu-jHoor might not break down mimim about 500 years to cor- slMd Partlcles for rorie into particles >'cars- under the effects of air, rain, "Glass is one of the most snow, natural mulch and sun- durable materials know lioht iProf. Marboe said.
