Trash Recycling

Most recycling material goes to China because of the cheap labor cost to sort out the bad material. China is greatly decreasing the amount of recycling that it will accept, especially plastics. Will have to pay more to sort here or material will just go to landfills. Like much of Green Energy, electric cars, Recycling has to be subsidized (in this case by cheap overseas labor) in order to be competitive economically.

    Link to Wash DC area info on recycling. Informs that Prince George’s County earned $750k on recycling in 2017 and lost $2.7mil in 2018.
