China’s Blue Skies 2018

WSRA is committed to monitoring and sharing as much information as possible in regards to China’s recent restrictions on imported recyclable materials which are likely to have significant impacts on Washington state’s residential and commercial recycling programs, and our membership. We’ve compiled and will continue to update information through our website on this situation.

What can WA residents do to help?
– Make sure your recyclables are empty, clean, and dry.
– Follow instructions from your local city, county, or recycling service.
– When in doubt, find out or throw it out.
