Where do Recylable items go?
The idea was that if you put plastic into that blue bin of yours than it would be reused and reused again and again, but a report shows that 80% of our recyclable stuff goes to China to be reused then put to make products around the world. I thought the idea was that the plastic bottles were reused and made more plastic bottles. I think that we need to have Canadian Recycable factories giving jobs to Canadians to recycle our plastic properly and ensure that we recycle properly, and not make products into one time use products that will be thrown out into the garbage. Now I am not discouraging recycling, because it is better that we at least recycle the product once rather than just throwing out the plastic.
