    "A crash in the global market for recyclables is forcing communities to make hard choices about whether they can afford to keep recycling or should simply send all those bottles, cans and plastic containers to the landfill."
    It defeats the purpose of eco-cycling to make it subject to the global market which is where the problem began in the first place. To make the effort viable, you have to want it enough to fight for why it is essential.
