China says no to Louisville’s recycling

It is time to gather local retailers and restaurants for a serious conversation on trash. As of January 1, China is banning “foreign waste”. “It has no value…it is trash.” In a filing with the World Trade Organization the country listed 24 kinds of solid wastes it would ban “to protect China’s environmental interests and people’s health.”
We have long ignored the problem of our consumption and convenience. We must face reality.  It is time to gather local retailers and restaurants for a serious conversation on trash.
