In a July 18, 2017 filing with the World Trade Organization (WTO), China’s Ministry of Environmental Protection announced that the country will prohibit the importation of some grades of recovered paper and plastic by the end of 2017. The WTO filing highlights the Chinese government’s efforts to clamp down on the quality of recovered material imports into the country.
What is the impact of this filing, since China is a primary destination for materials from U.S. material recovery facilities? Join this webinar where we will discuss the impact of this “Green Sword” to State and Local Governments. Join industry experts from the Solid Waste Association of America (SWANA), the National Waste and Recycling Association (NWRA) and CalRecycle to discuss the impacts and upcoming deadline.
