Recycling process

Recyclables are transported to a recycling sorting facility where they are sorted into separate commodity streams through an automated system. The recyclables are sorted using a recycling process based on material weights and densities, using lasers, and magnets. The recyclables are baled and marketed to various processors that convert the product back into raw materials.
