The plastic plague continues. Scientists are warning something must be done in the wake of China refusing the world's recycling. Plastic is piling up around the world and new solutions are needed.

Meanwhile people are recycling too much rubbish, running the industry.

Back here, Dunedin City Council is once again conducting bin checks to make sure residents are recycling properly. Each bin will be tagged as it is inspected, ranging from 'Wow!' to 'Yuck!' depending on how well the bin stacks up. Those that receive a red tag won't have their bin emptied until they shape up.
