Global Recycling Crisis Hits Home! What does this mean to me?
You may have been hearing things in the media lately about China cracking down on contamination in the recycling, and perhaps outright banning certain materials from being imported into their country.
Here are some links to a two-part story KOBI 5 ran recently:
What does this mean for our curbside collection program? For now, it is business as usual at the curb. We suspect there may eventually be changes to what we can collect curbside in the future, but for now, keep recycling right – THE BEST THING YOU CAN DO TO HELP is to “keep it clean – Recycle Right”. Click here to see the list of what is currently accepted in your commingle cart. But a good rule of thumb is “When in doubt, keep it out.” Our drivers are paying very close attention to contamination.
Will my commingle end up in the landfill? Rogue Disposal & Recycling is pursuing the option with DEQ to landfill material we cannot market, and if approved, will re-evaluate the situation on a monthly basis as the situation unfolds. This is not a long-term solution – but will likely be necessary in the short term.
