Recycle Right, Morgan Hill!

Recycle Right Breakdance

Did you know that most of the recycling collected in the U.S. goes to China to be recycled into new products?

Recently, the Chinese government implemented new rules severely restricting the import of recycled plastics and recycled paper from the U.S. Previously, China has accepted 4 to 5 percent impurities in bales of recycled materials. Now, China will only accept bales containing less than 1 percent of those impurities.

It’s more important than ever to put only the right stuff into your recycling cart here in Morgan Hill. And it’s equally important to keep out the things that can’t be recycled. When the recycling is full of trash, the recyclables can’t be processed into new products…what a waste! Let's Recycle Right, Morgan Hill!
