Curry County faring well during China recycling ban
China’s ban on many recycled items is coming home to roost in Oregon but Curry County is faring well, said recycling coordinator Candi Wilk of Curry Transfer and Recycling, the company that provides trash and recycling services here.
Since the announcement China wouldn’t take more loads of contaminated material — or plastics marked with Nos. 3 to 7 — CTR has merely eliminated them from the items that can be recycled, as well.
“We’ve always sorted (material) at the curb,” she said of the process of removing non-recyclables from what is put in the bin. “We’ve always had a really good product — probably better than anyone else in the state.”
