Yea plastics in water suck:
Easily fixed - by these people who have apparently been around for a few years now, and others like them: Converting Plastic to Oil
Supposedly their technology works - and their web site claims a conversion ratio for waste plastic into fuel of 86%. Approximately 1 gallon of fuel is extracted from 8.3 lbs. of plastic and they can process up to 4,000 lbs. per hour.
They could make a fortune out of the streams of plastic in the pics you posted.
