The last thing recycling needs is another, ill-researched, badly put together, inexperienced recycler mucking up the markets. What recycling does need is for potential recyclers to thoroughlky investigate the geography in which they want to set up what recycling, based on conducted formal market studies that either pre-exist in and for the area, or which the recycler conducts as a precondition for entering into a business.
You ask 'what's the best are to go into?' If by this you mean, what substance(s) should you recycle, this will depend upon geography and markets. If you mean, what's the best geography to go into, this too will depend upon markets, upon distances from potential sources of supply and from demand, upon transport issues, etc.
There is no one-size-fits-all answer to your question.
What geography are you talking about?
