NEW YORK — New York state lawmakers will hold a hearing on recycling amid China’s decision to restrict scrap imports.

The halt on China’s imports of wastepaper and plastic has disrupted U.S. recycling programs, but it also has spurred investment in American plants that process recyclables.

The heads of the state Senate and Assembly environmental conservation committees say they will take testimony to examine statewide recycling issues in New York City on Monday.

The hearing will examine New York’s recycling markets and the effectiveness of municipal recycling planning, among other issues.
