Listen to Sierra podcast "Pile of Scrap" episode 2: The Blue Bin Myth
How do we resolve the plastic pollution problem?
Jason Young, CEO of the Allan Company based in Southern California, discusses a possible solution with John Sacco of Sierra International Machinery. The solution involves more than just putting "recyclables" in the blue bin. It requires packaging manufacturers to think past the initial shelf life or their products. These issues lead to what we call the Blue Bin Myth: what can and cannot be recycled.
