Recycling material moves along a conveyor belt to be sorted at the Waste Management Material Recovery Facility in Elkridge, Maryland, June 28, 2018. - Some 900 tons of trash are dumped at all hours of the day and night, five days a week, on the conveyor belts at the plant. For months, this major recycling facility for the greater Baltimore-Washington area has been facing a big problem: it has to pay to get rid of huge amounts of paper and plastic it would normally sell to China. But Beijing is no longer buying, claiming the recycled materials are 'contaminated.' (Photo by SAUL LOEB / AFP) (Photo credit should read SAUL LOEB/AFP/Getty Images)
