Recycling Despite International Law Changes
Don't let this stop you from recycling
China used to accept about 40% of the United States' recycling, but they are no longer accepting our recycled materials.
Don't let this stop you from recycling. We still recycle and send recycled goods to other facilities. Last year in Wauwatosa, we collected 4,125 tons of recycling.
Recycling the proper items and making sure they are clean helps us keep our costs down. Also, recycling is less expensive than refuse.
Ever wonder what happens to your recycling after it leaves Wauwatosa? See this CBS 58 video about where our area's recycling goes.
