How Recycling Does Work
The first step is collection. Whether it be by our trucks or you bring it in yourself. Then, we feed it into machines that, with the help of workers and volunteers, sorts everything into its own area. Thanks to these machines, we can now sort a truckload of recyclables in just under an hour. The use of magnets aids us to make sure we donâ€™t have any metals where there shouldnâ€™t be.
Second Chance Recycle
Second Chance Recycle Giving your garbage another chance.
Not for you? Please at least recycle this brochure.
After everything is sorted, it is ran through hot water and cleaning alcohols to ensure that germs no longer exist and we are producing clean and healthy materials back to the public. Once cleaned, every item is shipped off in bails, such as the photograph above to a local company that melts items down to use them for the same purpose as before or creates a whole new product.
