DEQ statement on emerging recycling changes
is following the proposed China ban of post-consumer plastics
and unsorted paper closely and is engaged in ongoing conversations with
local governments, collectors, processors and industry representatives.
Given the major market disruption this is causing, DEQ and its partners
are preparing for different possibilities and developing strategies to
maintain recycling collection and processing where possible as we update
those systems to recycle more effectively in the future.
