WHY IS RECYCLING SO IMPORTANT
The Issue With The Blue-Bin Program
In 1983, Jack McGinnis of Waterloo Ontario in Canada who was passionate about forestry conservation, invented the Blue Bin Program. It was supposed to only collect Newspapers and Cardboard…
…That was working great until Laidlaw and other Waste and Recycling Companies got the idea that if they collected anything other than wet kitchen trash, they could make millions of dollars filling up empty cargo containers and send them to China… Until
they got greedy and started sending anything that they called “recyclable” materials…

…and they were sending material that was contaminated and so co-mingled it was impossible for the processors to separate the “trash” from the recycled materials so in January 2018, China enacted the “National Sword” policy, which banned the import of most plastics and other contaminated materials headed for that nation’s recycling processors, which had handled nearly half of the world’s recyclable waste for over 3 years …

… When this happened, thousands of MRF’s (Multi Recycling Facilities) across North America and the around the Globe lost one of their major buyers, sending them into a major “tailspin”. No longer could they make the huge profits in collecting our household and commercial waste or were the set up to properly sort through the tons of waste that ends up on a conveyor belt that is rapidly spinning while workers try to capture the “valuable stuff”…

… and sadly, they are struggling to collect the valuable material that is at their fingertips but despite the millions of dollars they spend on electronic scanners and sorting equipment they can on average, retrieve a dismal record of UNDER 10% Collected at the end of the Conveyer Belt…
Now as a result, in North America, more than 38 million tons of unnecessary plastics are now ending up in landfills, incinerators, or littering our ditches, rivers, lakes, and oceans as rising costs to haul away recyclable materials increasingly render the practice unprofitable resulting in OVER 90% THAT ENDS UP IN THE LANDFILL!!!
As a result, this dilemma has put the burden on to local municipal landfills who struggle to make a profit in handling all the unnecessary plastic, glass and metal that is collected at our doorstep.

more importantly, it is our precious environment that is the ultimate looser as nations try to figure out what happened, and how we stop climate change and the destruction that is happening around the globe.
Combined with all the plastic food containers, packaging from retail stores and offices, unnecessary plastic is buried under tons of trash in our landfills. Harmful toxic chemicals leach into the groundwater and contaminate the water supply. Tiny plankton eat the plastic particles, the fish eat the plankton, people eat the fish and, in the end, this all effects the health of humans, the wildlife and our marine life.

After 3 years of development and taking a serious look at everything that has gone wrong, we would like you to join us on a new journey…
A Solution To The 92% Of Plastic Waste Too Contaminated And Difficult To Recycle
“The DAWN of a NEW ERA” for Proper Waste and Recycling Practices
We are successfully retrieving over 80% of uncontaminated, plastics, glass and metals that go directly to processors who specialize in repurposing and reusing the valuable materials that we have thrown away.
