For the past 30 years, China was the largest importer of recyclable paper and plastic. In 2018, China and other countries put significant restrictions on imported recycling, thus changing the world recycling industry as we knew it. Because of these changes, the United States has a large supply of recyclables, but no demand for them. This caused prices for all recyclables to fall.
Some communities have seen significant changes to recycling, including stopping it altogether, and the Town of Wilkesboro is not any different. Just because an item item is marked recyclable, does not mean it is recyclable in the Town of Wilkesboro. One thing to keep in mind, is that the town’s recycling vendor has the final decision on what items they will accept from the town’s recycling stream. Each recycling stream vendor experiences the same scrutiny with their recyclables since other countries are demading cleaner recyclables.
The town is proud to have an element of our downtown revitalization featured on Samsel Architect's portfolio of their amazing work at: https://samselarchitects.com/portfolio-item/wilkesboro-stage/. With the purpose of restoring life and energy back into our historic downtown, the Wilkes Communications Pavilion addressed only one of several areas.
