The Canadian Plastics Industry Association (CPIA) have launched a confidential, online tool for the country's recyclers and brokers to report on recovered plastics for which they have no market or that have been rejected by overseas markets.

As China continues to implement a ban targeting 24 categories of imported low-grade recycling materials that contain "dirty wastes or even hazardous materials", concerns about shipments being rejected at entry ports is growing in Canada, potentially leaving recyclers and brokers with stranded tons.

CPIA invites recycling processors and brokers to use the "reporting tool" button to go to a survey to provide information about the plastic materials that are not moving to end markets.

While CPIA developed the tool for Canadian recycling collectors and brokers, those in the US industry are also welcome to input data.

The data provided will be aggregated to arrive at total tons that are currently stranded. All individual user data will be kept confidential and will not be revealed. The tool requests information about the plastic materials that the recyclers collected, focusing on plastic types that have been rejected or stranded and what is being done to manage these materials now.

Where information is requested about total tonnages of stranded materials, estimates are acceptable to help CPIA understand the magnitude of the challenge.

Users can update the data as needed to accurately reflect market situations as they change. Information gathered will inform discussions within the end-market industry about investment in new domestic (North American) markets or the potential for taking advantage of capacity that may open up in existing markets.

CPIA is collaborating with partner organizations such as the Association of Plastic Recyclers, American Chemistry Council - Plastics Division and the Institute of Scrap Recycling Industries in the US to discuss how to build options to Chinese import markets.
