Recycling plastic back into food-grade plastic requires more energy and labor compared to converting recycled plastic into fiber for apparel and carpeting.

Although recycling is a common practice now, the concept of recycling has been around for thousands of years. Long before recycling was the production it is today, recycling as an idea was something that households carried out to conserve and reuse materials because goods could not be made as quickly and cheaply before the industrial revolution.

[08/26/20]   Whether you have been recycling for decades or just started, it’s worth taking a second look to make sure you are recycling correctly. Recycling technology and processes change over time, so recycling program rules change, too.
Remember to keep your recyclables clean, dry, and un-bagged when depositing them into recycling carts or local drop-off centers. Bagged recyclables aren’t recycled because they can’t be sorted by the recycling equipment.

Drop-off and residential recycling systems are only designed to process certain program items. Plastic bags also tangle up in the sorting equipment, which causes equipment damage, creates health and safety hazards for workers, reduces the amount of recyclables that can be successfully recovered, and increases the overall cost of the recycling process.

Electronic waste, or e-waste, represents only 2% of trash in landfill in the US, but equals up to 70% of overall toxic waste.

Electronics, new and used, are made up of heavy metals and toxic substances such as lead which can cause damage to nervous systems, blood, and kidneys. Because of this, e-waste should always be recycled in specific collection sites to ensure that these heavy metals and toxic substances are handled by professionals and reused or disposed of correctly.

Q: Do I have to remove the labels from my glass bottles and jars?⁠

A: Nope. You can leave all the labels on your containers unless you’re into label peeling for some reason!⁠

When the glass goes through our processing facility, many of the labels are removed by our de-labeling machine. We also have areas of suction and optical sorters, which specifically sort out non-glass items like labels.⁠
