China Restricts The Import Of Recycled Plastic

In an effort to clean up its recycling industry, China has laid down its Green Fence and National Sword policies. In a World Trade Organization filing this July, China said that imports of recovered plastics and other recovered materials will be severely restricted and in some cases totally banned.  Firms shipping recovered plastics have had to reduce their China shipments by over 40%. This has left recyclers scrabbling to find new markets and causing even more recoverable plastics to end up in landfills.

“It is unfortunate that in the short-term we may have to divert some of our recovered material to landfills but Rundle Eco continues to seek out new markets. We are working with our stakeholders and exploring markets in Canada and the US for our materials.”

All that hype on Social Media was well worth it. If you didn’t consider this a win you might want to check out this article because the Calgary Sun newspaper sure thought so.

The Friday, October 20th game may not have been the outcome of choice for some, However, the pre-game tailgate party hosted by Big Fish Staffing and Rundle Eco Services Ltd. sure helped ease the post-game pain. We would like to thank Village Brewery for their tasty craft beer and Burgundy Oak Shop for their generous contribution of the Smoke Barrel which was essential for such an occasion.
