Recycle Across America and Lamar Advertising Launches Largest Recycling Campaign In U.S. History
America’s Trash has always been a problem.
And it seems it’s always been someone else’s problem as in, “Not in my back yard.” For a few years, the US was getting ‘away with’ dumping trash by shipping it to China. China used to purchase a third of U.S. recycling. Pretty good gig and opportunity for us. Then as people do, we got sloppy and failed to keep the recyclables separated from other trash. The result, the Chinese gave us a warning to clean up the recycling trash we were shipping them. See the Green Fence Policy in 2013 . Five years later, January 2018, without seeing improvements with the contamination levels, our Chinese interests shut the dump on us with the ⇒ 2018 China announced the Green Sword Policy. The result, banning the purchase of most U.S. recyclables due to the contamination.
