    Mr Bao Yuzhu deputy director general of Manzhouli bureau of commerce said that China will increasingly rely on iron ore import to meet the growing demand in domestic market. Besides, climbing cost pressures in and aboard, such as rising oil price and strained transportations would urge domestic steelmakers to switch to Russia a new source for iron ore import------WorldScrap

    Recycling - Should it be mandated?

    Compliance with recycling ordinances in south Bergen towns is mixed and the rules are not strictly enforced. South Bergen towns recycle everything from tin cans to grass clippings to electronics.

    Rutherford Recycling coordinator Sharon Del Vecchio has had problems with cooperation, particularly with regard to a townhouse complex she did not name. The Rutherford Department of Public Works has not fined anyone in recent memory, but Del Vecchio said it is not out of the question. "It¡¯s not enforced very well. I believe the administration at the time ¨C it just wasn¡¯t something that they did," she said.

    Will you get fined?

    One area where Rutherford residents need improvement is wood waste, which should be collected separately from other heavy garbage. Lyndhurst recycling coordinator said people in Lyndhurst have been good at recycling goods, but noted that town sanitation workers cannot always spot bottles and cans mixed in with regular trash. "The townspeople are pretty good. We have a good turnout for recycling," said Rosa.

    East Rutherford recycling coordinator Mark LaGala said people have been fined for not recycling correctly in recent years. When the DPW catches them, a warning is issued before fines are imposed.

    Private haulers need more compliance

    The state regulates private haulers who take garbage from dumpsters at apartment complexes, businesses or other properties. Recycling coordinators, which the state mandates every town to have, receive reports from these private sanitation companies every year and the amount of material they recycle is applied to recycling tonnage grants, moneys the town receives from the state for the amount of materials it recycles.

    Sanitation companies pick up various recyclable materials from south Bergen properties and make a report to the town on how much they collected. This number is factored in to the total tonnage of recycled materials collected in a town. LaGala acknowledges that there might be mistakes here and there, but the detailed reports received from private haulers demonstrate at least some compliance.

    Rutherford recycles appliances

    An area where Rutherford residents have already pitched in is electronic waste. Rutherford breaks from other area communities by picking up "e-waste" on Wednesdays. Every few months, Lyndhurst conducts a town-wide recycling drop off for electronic waste. All electronic equipment from television sets to toasters can be dropped off at Lincoln School at Ridge Road and Valley Brook Avenue on selected Saturday afternoons throughout the year. The next one will be after Labor Day, according to Rosa.

    Past efforts have been successful as Lyndhurst residents look for a place to put their bulky computers and TV sets in the age of flat screen TVs and laptops. If a resident cannot drop it off, DPW workers will pick it up at their homes.

    Copper bandits

    The rising cost of recyclable materials has led some to take recyclables from the curb. As any recycling coordinator will tell you, this is stealing. The cost of metal is at an all time high and while many residents mix aluminum cans and plastic bottles in the same containers, the ones who do not might see someone take their cans in the middle of the night. "Metal is definitely being taken before we get there," said Del Vecchio.

    Trucks of people cruise around the borough at night seeking anything metal: bed frames, dressers, light fixtures and chairs. Del Vecchio said people have clipped and stripped electrical cords to retrieve the copper.

    Towns rake in thousands of dollars annually, money which is applied to municipal budgets, so while residents might applaud metal bandits for getting rid of their trash, the thefts could affect their property taxes.

    Vince Rosa has notified the police department about curbside thefts of recyclable materials. To date, the police have not caught anyone riding around and taking materials during recycling periods, but Rosa said he hopes to catch them. "We could throw the book at them if we do," he added.

    People stealing recyclable materials from curbsides in Lyndhurst can be fined $1,000. Rosa wants residents to take down the license plate numbers of the thieves and the police will take care of the rest.

    LaGala has also noticed an increase in incidents of recyclable materials being stolen from curbsides in East Rutherford, particularly metal. "The markets are high on a lot of recyclables," he said.

    Food waste could be next recyclable

    Another trend in the sanitation industry that is garnering attention from the state and area municipalities is the disposal of food waste. The head custodian from the Rutherford School System attended a lecture from a Montclair State University professor who helped implement a food waste program at the college that has reduced kitchen scrap waste to zero by composting.

    The price of disposing garbage in a landfill is $84 a ton and food waste, mostly composed of water, is heavy, said Del Vecchio. She suggests the construction of a food waste processing plant in the Meadowlands, which she feels would be a perfect location to get the ball rolling on turning trash into energy in south Bergen. "If we do it right, it would be a tremendous advantage educationally, financially and environmentally," she said.

    In the future, Lyndhurst will focus on collecting food waste from restaurants and supermarkets so it can be properly recycled.

    International plastics recycling standard launched

    An international standard designed to assist the development of a worldwide market for plastics recovery and recycling has been launched.

    The standard ISO 15270:2008 - ¡°Plastics - Guidelines for the recovery and recycling of plastics waste¡± - has been compiled after input from relevant international industry bodies and stakeholder associations.

    It is a compilation of their opinions regarding essential requirements and good practices and is not mandatory.

    However, it is hoped the standard will help establish a sustainable infrastructure for recovery/recycling and a sustainable market for recovered materials and products manufactured from them.

    Michael Fisher, the current chair of the ISO Technical Committee on Plastics (ISO TC 61), told that the standard was important to all plastics recycling stakeholders in ¡°both the public and private sectors¡±.

    Before his retirement, Fisher worked as a senior director for the Plastics Division of the American Chemistry Council in Arlington, the US. He added that the standard specifies terms and definitions related to plastics recovery and provides a framework for understanding different plastics recovery options.

    Fisher said it covers plastics in all markets, from bottles to automobiles, and was written to be globally relevant.

    He added: ¡°Plastics recycling is still largely an emerging industry around the globe and a common language supporting a defined technical framework can significantly aid in its growth.¡±

    Fisher added: ¡°It is a standard that recognises that resource recovery is not simply a solid waste management issue but is important to sustainable development and benefits from an integrated resource management perspective.¡±
