When China ceased accepting many of the world’s recyclables in 2018, it not only caused the value of materials to plummet due to oversupply but also brought to light how misunderstood recycling has become over the past 20 years. Residents and businesses alike are placing items in traditional collection containers that can only be recycled elsewhere. Marta Keane, Recycling Specialist for Will County, will sort through these issues and highlight the many specialty collections the County offers to divert as much material from the landfill as possible.
