The Process

1. Disposal

The first step to making sure the right material gets recycled is making sure recyclables are thrown into a recycling container. Therefore, knowing what would be recyclable is essential.

2. Collection

Once service day arrives, material is collected and transported to one of our facilities to begin sorting the material.

3. Sorting Facility Ship out Bales of Recyclables

Our Material Recovery Facilities have a combination of personnel and machinery to be able to efficiently separate materials to be bailed.

4. Ship out Bales of Recyclables

The final step is making sure we have clean bales of recyclable material that gets sent out to be made into new products.
