Some town officials say they can use other companies but will receive less on their trash. Sounds like it should have been possible for this company to renegotiate some contracts if there was a legitimate reason, like the China problem. Could there have been some misfeasance or malfeasance going on? Visits to Atlantic City casinos? Mafia rake offs, etc? This is New Jersy.
Joisy is like Detroit but with Italians
The article barely touched on the problem, which it says is now ended. China, the recipient of the waste, believes the waste is mixed with non-recyclable waste.
Essentially, we are sending our waste to China for recycling. I submit that’s because it makes no economic sense to recycle the stuff here. If it makes no sense to do it and we must rely on essentially slave labor in another country that we should end recycling.
The only thing that it ever made sense to recycle was aluminum.
Bizarre concept to me, that the company had to pay anything for raw trash.
