The End of Recycling?

Jeffrey Yoskowitz: "For now, with fewer purchasers and lower prices, it seems that recycling centers will be forced to sell once-valued commodities for cheap, undercutting their expenses. And, if things worsen and the markets erode further, a great deal of recycling could halt altogether, putting stress on our landfills. This, in turn could force manufacturers to seek out virgin raw materials to produce what were once products with multiple life spans."
