This has been in the news here in the NYC area. Towns are finding there are no takers for most of the recyclables. This article shows how China apparently realized that taking all kinds of recyclables was bad for the environment and just said no more. So, now we're turning some of the rest of Southeast Asia into an environmental mess and apparently they aren't taking enough, so we're still screwed.
We've talked about this here before, but this is pretty bad and huge setback for the proponents of recycling. Here, we're sending separate trucks out each week to pick up the single stream recycling. And it looks like most of it is going into the landfill anyway. Maybe it's time to call it quits? But I doubt the tree huggers driving it will accept reality.
