Single Stream Recycling - Watch and Learn

Interested to learn exactly what happens to your recyclables once you toss them in the blue bin? RecycleBank offers a whole series of videos on YouTube that shows you just how recyclables are processed.

Read on for more from the series.RecycleBank's video series teaches us what happens to plastic, glass, paper, and metals after they head from our homes to the recycling center. Learn how the materials are sorted, and the various recycling processes for each material.

Videos are offered in series on YouTube, or you can see the full video at RecycleBanks's website. I highly suggest heading to their website - it's a much more interactive, choose-your-own-adventure style of learning.

If you're interested in learning how your local recycling plant does the job, try calling the facility. Often, guided tours are offered to groups.
