Cool Mixed Containers Recycling Facts
Mixed containers are taken to our state of the art processing facility for sorting.
Your blue box recyclables goes through an intense sorting process before they are recycled.
After being picked up, large volumes of recyclables are unloaded at our processing plant, placed on conveyor belts, and passed through a battery of magnets, optical sorters, and manual workers who separate each item into its own stream—glass, and different types of plastics and metals.
Materials are baled and shipped to markets where they will be made into new products.
Recyclables go to markets all over North America and around the world. Manufacturers take these materials and turn them into new items for consumers and businesses to purchase.
