China Finally Acknowledges Scrap is Not Waste

Read the full story from ISRI.

The Chinese Government has announced the intent to implement a new standards regime for imports of copper, brass, and aluminum derived from recycling, and the new standards were posted over the weekend. Although the system does not completely reopen the Chinese market to scrap trade, it is a major indication that the Chinese Government finally acknowledges that scrap commodities are valuable products and imports, and should not be managed under the same guidelines for “solid waste.” This is a major achievement after two decades of ISRI advocating that Scrap is Not Waste.
