The article will run in the Watertown Daily Times on Sunday, April 21 and online at WatertownDailyTimes.com.
Within the past two years, China and other Asian countries have changed the markets in America by dramatically reducing the amount of recycling they buy from the United States. This, along with other factors, has contributed to rising costs for consumers, as it now costs money to dispose of recyclables that used to be sold for profits. The changes have impacted county government, local business, and residents of the North Country. This edition of More to the Story takes a look into the world of recycling, the difficulties facing the current market, and the future of recycling going forward.
More to the Story: Recycling is sponsored by Advanced Business Systems.
