Where does my recycling go?
Recycling is growing more expensive and likely will start to become more limited and restrictive in the coming years.
Why??? This is because China, which accepts roughly two-thirds of the entire world’s recycling materials, will be stepping almost entirely out of the global market.
So most people are asking, what does that have to do with me and my recycling? This action is being taken by China because they are receiving more trash than good products to recycle and that process starts at your house. The entire recycling industry has new guidelines which became effective on January 1, 2018 and strictly govern the type of materials and the quality of the sorted recycling. This slows down the recycling facilities and requires more people, thus increased costs.
Additionally these changes have had very hard impacts on the value of recycling and it now costs more money for many types of products to be sorted and recycled than they are worth.
So what can you do? Follow the City’s recycling guide, don’t place items that don’t belong in the recycling, only put clean recycling in the bins, and help spread this message to your neighbors and friends.
