Why Does Electronic Recycling Cost Money?

7/15/19 - Countries in the Far East, including China and their neighbors, have started closing their borders to the importation of Recyclable Materials & Trash from the West; ports in Southeast Asia are turning away Container Ships full of trash and “recyclable plastic”, sending the ships back to their home countries.  Unfortunately for us, this means that more of the material may need to be sent directly to landfills in the United States or stored until the electronic recycling market for computers and related equipment opens up.
