Sharon Singh in BIV on China's ban on Recyclable Waste
February 20, 2018
Sharon Singh comments in Business in Vancouver on China’s new ban on certain types of imported, recyclable waste. The ban was implemented on December 31, 2017. Sharon says jurisdictions that send waste to China should not have been surprised by the ban. “Perhaps they didn’t take heed of the messages that were sent back in 2012, when China started imposing these restrictions. This ban is not something that is new or should come as a surprise to a lot of folks. China has been doing this progressively over the last decade.”
