Until 2018, China was the main recipient of the world's recycable plastics. But the country has stopped accepting almost all foreign materials - including that of Canadian municipalities. This means that plastic film/stretchable plastic is no longer a recyclable material.
As of April 2018, residents in North Battleford are asked to please put all items made out of stretchable plastic into the black garbage bin instead of the blue recycle bin. This material will now be disposed of at the local Waste Management Facility.
