Pricey plastic


A customer places purchased items in standard plastic garbage bags at a grocery store in Seoul on Monday. The price of garbage bags is expected to rise as private recycling companies have stopped collecting Korea’s plastic waste, citing heightened processing costs. The Ministry of Environment is now working with waste management companies and municipal governments to ensure that waste is properly collected, as it struggles to come up with sustainable responses to China stopping plastic waste imports.
