Green Stream stops processing recyclables at Brookhaven facility

On Monday, Green Stream Recycling stopped processing recyclables at Brookhaven’s recycling facility, but the company was on site to haul away the tons of unprocessed materials that remain there. Green Stream Recycling told town officials it could no longer process discarded paper, plastics, cardboard and aluminum at the plant in Brookhaven hamlet because of worsening conditions in recycling markets stemming from China's decision earlier this year to curtail purchases of U.S. recyclables.
