China threw a curveball, and now we're throwing a lot of "recyclables" into landfills.
We used to ship many recycled materials to China, but the country complained about too many contaminated loads, and stopped taking them. That produced changes in how curbside recycling is handled in many American communities.
The City of Eureka just got involved, with a new glass recycling program that does not charge residents for the service.
Robin Praszker from the city's Community Services office visits with details.
