Processing: The collected waste is mechanically and/or manually separated into fabrics, metals, fibers, and plastics. Fabrics are reused, upcycled or recycled as appropriate. Metals are smelted so they may be recycled. The fibers (such as paper or wood based products) are recycled or composted. The plastics undergo extrusion and pelletization to be molded into new recycled plastic products.
Accepted Waste: Please send us your discarded single-use Styrofoam/paper/plastic cups, plates, storage containers, and utensils. You may also send straws; wrapping paper, ribbons, bows, tissue paper, napkins, and party supplies such as garlands, noise makers, party favors, punch bowls, balloons, and confetti.
Processing: The collected waste is mechanically and hand separated into fibers (like wood and coated paper), fabrics (like cotton), metals, plastics and other materials. The resulting fibers will be hydro-pulped to separate out coatings (like wax and plastics). The separated fiber will be recycled into new paper products, or composted if recycling is not possible. The resulting plastics will be recycled into plastic polymers. The separated fabrics are reused, upcycled or recycled as appropriate. Metals are smelted for steel making. Flexible and rigid plastics undergo extrusion and pelletization to be molded into various recycled plastic products. Other materials, like glass or rubbers, will be recycled as appropriate to that category of waste. Please take note of what is recyclable in your local recycling system when using this program.
