Some Alameda residents have expressed concern regarding a recycling crisis begun when China refused to receive American recyclables last year as a tactic in trade negotiations. Called interchangably the “National Sword” and “Blue Sky” initiatives, some residents have suggested these efforts have caused local garbage collectors to co-mingle landfill and recycling waste. Officials insist no changes have occurred with Alameda’s garbage or recycling service provided by Alameda County Industries (ACI).
