Global Recycling Crisis Puts Greater Focus on Recycling Contamination
Over the past year, there have been global concerns over recyclable material quality and these expectations are not going away.
In January 2018, China will no longer accept 26 types of recyclable materials into their country. Nearly 60% of recyclable materials generated in California are currently exported to China and other Asian markets. As a result, processing mills throughout the country and the world are demanding recycling facilities ship only recyclables with less than one percent contamination which is a significant change in material requirement standards. A minimal amount of contamination such as garbage, green waste or other debris can ruin a complete load of recyclable material. Quality of recyclable material can impact your costs should contamination require recycling being dumped as trash.
Please help us prevent and reduce contamination of recyclable material by reviewing the guidelines below and seeing what materials are accepted in our residential recycling program.
