ILSR co-founder Neil Seldman argues that the market for American recyclables is quite strong. Despite China halting their imports of U.S. recycled material, there is still lots of value and potential for wealth from our own waste. Neil is quoted extensively in this piece breaking down what’s working and what’s not working in U.S. recycling.
Here is an excerpt:
“The U.S. has the most valuable waste stream in the world,” Seldman says. “And we’re approaching a time when everyone will want it.” So much so, in fact, he says, “China and other countries are investing to get at our recyclables before waste companies can landfill the valuable materials.”
