Does US companies import trash for recycling?

    It does not appear that US companies are importing trash for recycling. However there is a huge trade in waste importation. Near the turn of the century America was importing roughly 50 million tons more trash than it was producing locally. This included toxic waste from Mexico to be disposed of in the US. It does not include the interstate waste trade of which Pennsylvania recieves the most at around 23% or upwards of 45 million pounds a year to be dumped or burned in the state.
