Submission + - Recycled Christmas Lights in China Get Happy Endi (theatlantic.com)

retroworks writes: "Shanghai based reporter Adam Minter visits where recycled Christmas Tree lighting goes in Chiina. Visiting Shijao, the town known as the Mecca for Christmas tree light recycling, he finds good news. The recycling practices in China have really cleaned up. Plastic casings once burned are now recycled into shoe soles in a wet process (film attached). Minter concludes that even if you try to recycle your wire in the USA, that the special equipment and processes for Christmas light recycling have been perfected in China "to the benefit of the environment, and pocketbooks, in both countries.""
