China Stops receiving International Garbage

As of January 1 , 2018  China will no longer accept cargo's of  USA scrap plastic,paper, and textiles accounting for 1/3 of the 180 million tons of the worlds tonnage imported annually ---

 

The article in '' Bloomberg Business '' stated 40,000 US jobs could be affected -although garbage is piling up --- 

 

During the ''mid 2000'' time frame this product accounted for one of the largest volumes of US exported ''' products''' lines ? ?

 

I noticed several news sites reported on this , '''' I don't  reCaLL '' all of them ---

Re: China Stops receiving International Garbage

I think that all the products produced from scrap plastic, paper, and textiles accounting, should be interdicted all around the world. I mean that it would e right to interdict using these materials in production. Of course, it is not that easy, and it is impossible to interdict them instantly, but having a long-term strategy, it may be possible to replace scrap plastic, paper, and textiles accounting with other materials. I also have a small furniture manufacture, and we have a lot of wood scrap, but I collaborate with a company that recycles the rubbish. Even though I have no economical advantages from this, it is cool that they recycle the rubbish. If you want, you can find more about the company I am talking about by checking their site: https://mobileskips.com.au/brisbane.

Re: China Stops receiving International Garbage

I think it's the right decision. China has a lot of garbage itself. It doesn't need any more from the US. The wisest choice would be to stop producing paper, plastic, and textiles for some years. Then we'll need to learn to recycle. Or at least send them to recycling companies. My company uses a lot of paper every week. Every Friday, I collect all the forms that have been used and aren't needed anymore. In the evening, a driver from https://www.186needabin.com/service-areas/bin-rental-toronto/ takes our garbage bin with all that paper away and, I think, delivers it to a recycling company.

Re: China Stops receiving International Garbage

You can remotely order and rent a container and then come to get it. We actually asked for a bin here https://www.186needabin.com/disposal-bins/ to store big old antiques that we didn't want to throw away but couldn't keep in the house anymore. We had just moved in. I read that somewhere in the U.S. there are such containers where things can be left cheap to rent before buying a third party and after the purchase transfer percentage of sales. But it's just a benefit that is paid for the sale and I only pay rent for storage.
