Trashing the waste? Kate O’Neill, Associate Professor at UC Berkeley

Title: Kate O’Neill, Associate Professor in the Department of Environmental Science, Policy and Management at UC Berkeley

The dirty secret of the supposedly clean recycling movement is that much of it is being done offshore and not necessarily in eco-friendly ways. That's about to change as China, the world's largest importer of waste, closes its ports to much of the foreign garbage it receives, starting March 1. Will that spur the rest of the world to take better care of its own mess?
