Do you every wonder what happens to all that plastic once it leaves the recycling bin on your curb? It gets recycled and marketed to bottle and plastic product makers, but a lot happens in between.
When plastic arrives at a recycling facility, it’s first sorted by type. Then it’s pushed into a machine that smashes it all together into a cube. Last, it’s banded up and put on a trailer to ship off to market. Learn where that recycled plastic ends up by watching this video.
