WSRA is committed to monitoring and sharing as much information as possible in regards to China's recent restrictions on imported recyclable materials which are likely to have significant impacts on Washington state’s residential and commercial recycling programs, and our membership. We've compiled and will continue to update information through our website on this situation.
