US-POLITICS-ENVIRONMENT-CHINA

Trucks deliver trash and recycling waste at the District of Columbias Fort Totten Transfer Station in Washington, DC, on July 10, 2018 - Since China, the top global importer of recycable materials for years, has stopped to accept recycables from countries including the United States in January on grounds of 'contamination', the US is struggling with an excess amount of recycable material and no streamlined process to deal with it. As a result, some plastics and paper end up in landfills and some smaller American cities have ended recycling collection programs all together.
