Recycling has become a way of life for many people, but do you ever wonder what happens to the trash that you put into your recycling bin? Your recyclables have a long journey from your curb to their final transformation into a new product, but nearly everything you take the time to recycle does get re-used and helps reduce waste.
In this video, see where your recyclables go after you put them in your bin. See how many times recyclable materials are sorted before they are compacted and sent to a recycling center. Then, find out how the recycling center cleans, melts, and shreds plastics that can be molded into various products, including new recycling bins.
