CHINA'S GROWING RECYCLING INDUSTRY

 

With a population of more than one billion people, China creates massive volumes of waste. But its recycling industry is also growing fast and utilises not only its own rubbish but that of other countries as well. It is the world's biggest importer of waste, taking in plastics from the US, before transforming them into new products to be shipped back to Western countries.
