On February 16th, the Victoria, B.C.-based Coast Waste Management Association hosted a meeting and seminar called Plastics Management - economic, market and regulatory trends affecting plastics. The conference, held in Nanaimo, B.C., brought together close to 80 delegates from Vancouver Island and around the province, and as far away as the Yukon and Washington State, including an expert industry panel. The goal of the meeting was to discuss present market conditions and what can be done to adapt, in light of China's recently established policy on regulations surrounding import of recycled materials. Attendees were briefed on work that is being done to address the issue, alternative markets for plastics and what we might expect to see going forward.
