    A friend told me that there was a news report that said most of our recycling was put in a landfill anyway. I guess because China isn’t buying are recycling anymore. I thought we were trying to reuse most of our recycling.

      Hi Angela, 

      This is why avoiding contamination of recyclables is so important. The amount of recyclables that end up in a landfill varies widely by municipality, but when it happens, it's most often caused by improper recycling at the household level causing contamination down the line.
