The good news from Recycle Utah is that they still will take cardboard.    The bad news is that it is costing them more, under current market conditions. 


About two years ago, China started to turn away recyclable materials from the U.S.    Recycle Utah Director Carolyn Wawra said in some ways, it’s good that this country is dealing with its own waste.    It creates jobs, and encourages creative ideas to deal with the material.

Still, she said, they are probably spending $6-10,000 more to dispose of cardboard.
