Recycling is Complicated: Watch our clip on AJ+

Yes, it’s true that Philadelphia will be resuming recycling once again, with 100% going to a Waste Management MRF as of May 1st.

How complicated is our recycling problem? From the consumer to the MRF and city regulations, there’s a lot of moving pieces with room for error. Recently, I spoke to AJ+ about it. Watch the full clip:

(Bonus points if you can spot local businesses, our recycling guide and zero waste products in the clip.)

Reminder: Philly has a new Recycling Contract in Place BUT it’s STILL complicated.

Put this on my tombstone if we still have the current obsession with recycling.

For how we got into this mess, read our recent piece on why recycling is so complicated.
