A New Way to Recycle
Single stream recycling is a recycling system where all recyclable materials such as paper, plastics, and metals can be put together in the same container for transportation to recycling facilities. Once the recyclable materials arrive at the recycling facilities, specially designed and built machines can separate the single stream of materials into the appropriate categories for separate handling. Single stream recycling is a boon for all parties involved in the recycling process, from individual households to trash removal companies and even the towns that use this system.
