Tucson paper trash to be recycled by way of China

TUCSON, Ariz. -- Tucson's trash is China's treasure.

The Arizona Daily Star reports a Chinese company has entered a deal in which it will buy all of the city's recycled paper goods.

America Chung Nam Inc., or ACNI, will export up to 100 containers to collect junk mail, cardboard boxes, newspapers and other recyclables.

ACNI officials say the Port of Tucson's designation as a dry seaport means the company can directly ship containers by rail from Tucson to California.

From there, they will be placed on ocean vessels bound for China.

The company says they can use wastepaper to manufacture newsprint and printing and writing paper.

Tucson officials say the deal marks a significant economic development for the region.
