How patio furniture and fence posts might solve Nova Scotia's plastic recycling woes
A Halifax-area company says it has a made-in-Nova Scotia solution to the challenge of recycling plastics — turn shopping bags into fence posts and patio furniture. Municipalities across the province have scrambled to find new markets for recycled plastic after China stopped accepting the material last year. But Dan Chassie, the president of Halifax C&D Recycling Ltd., a company that handles construction and demolition waste, says he's got another answer to the province's plastic woes. "With the equipment that we have now," Chassie said, "we'll be able to handle more plastic than Nova Scotia produces."
