NEWSLETTER OF THE CANADIAN ASSOCIATION OF RECYCLING INDUSTRIES
Vol. 23, Issue 12, December 2018
MESSAGE FROM THE CHAIR
Alongside associations such as ISRI and BIR, CARI advocates for free and open trade of recycled materials and by working together, our associations represent recyclers across the globe.
As our industry adapts to changes in markets, such as China’s import bans (see below), it’s critical for us to lobby for our industry at an international level.
Earlier this week, CARI President Tracy Shaw travelled to Washington for our annual meeting with ISRI staff. CARI and ISRI have a unique partnership, and this meeting allows us to collaborate, share ideas, and work together towards common goals.
Recently, BIR held a meeting in Vienna aimed at finding ways to overcome existing barriers to recycling industries. CARI staff did not attend this particular meeting, but it shows that these types of events are happening all over the world – our industry works together on a global scale and it is important for us to have a united voice.
As we continue to work closely with our international counterparts, we urge you to stay informed, get involved, and reach out to CARI staff with any questions about the state of international trade.
Along with CARI staff Donna, Marie, and Tracy, and the CARI Board of Directors, I would like to wish every member, its employees, and their families a wonderful holiday season and a prosperous New Year.
The Chinese government has announced an import ban of various “solid waste” materials. This includes a list of 16 materials banned from import by December 2018, and an additional 16 materials banned by December 2019.
