Each week you’re careful to recycle what you can and what our facility is able to accept. But what exactly happens to the paper, cardboard, glass bottles and jars, plastic containers, tin and aluminum cans you toss in your bin? All of the material collected is sorted by type through a series of screens, hand sorters, and optical sorting machines at our state-of-the-art Material Recovery Facility. Huge bales of material are then picked up or transported to various companies to be made into everything from new paper to new carpet.
Businesses can also participate in recycling through our WeSort recycling program.
