The State of Recycling
Beginning January 1, 2018, China has banned the import of recycled scraps with more than .5% contamination - much lower than the global standard. China has been the largest importer of recycled materials including 7.3 million metric tons of recovered plastic from the US in 2016. These new limitations have put enormous pressure on western countries, including the United States.
Contaminants include plastic bags, food waste, loose shredded paper, wrong plastics, etc. The US currently exports one-third of its recycled materials—how are we handling the excess waste? Unfortunately, much of this waste ends up in local landfills or in large containers in shipping yards around the country. What can we do? The best solution is to ensure the correct recycling of materials and ensuring all recyclables are clean when placed in your recycling container.
