    Process:

    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.
