Have you ever wondered what happens to your recyclables after you put them at the curb?

After being collected by a recycling truck, the recyclables are brought to a Materials Recovery Facility (MRF).
At the MRF, all the mixed recycling is sorted and separated into different types of materials by hand or machine (or both) before being sent to manufacturers who make it into new products. Once materials have been sorted, recycled materials become valuable commodities in the worldwide market.
