Hi everyone, my name is Christina, and I live in Alberta, Canada with my hubby, and my two daughters.
So, in the last couple of months, we have been inundated with news about the changes in our recycling due to China’s decision to stop buying our recycled waste. For years, about half of Canada’s recycling exports were being purchased by China, but that has all stopped. This has directly effected us because now, what we can put into our blue bags has completely changed.
We had it good with our recycling system; just wash all our recycling and stick it all together in a blue bag on the curb. Now it isn’t so easy. The biggest change; we can’t put any glass or soft plastics (like the clam shells berries come in) into our blue bags.
