Australia's recycling crisis: How you can reduce your footprint

Protesters are seen outside of the Parliament House, Melbourne, Tuesday, March 19, 2019.

Kerbside recycling from dozens of Victorian councils is set to go straight to landfill after a major recycling company announced it would stop accepting materials. It's the latest development in an escalating recycling crisis causing trouble around Australia. But there are a few things individuals can do to decrease dependence on the struggling industry.

Last year, China announced it would stop importing waste from other countries.

Specifically, citing concerns about contamination and pollution, it said it would no longer buy recyclables that weren't 99.5 per cent pure.
