Does trash get sorted before it goes to landfills?

    It depends where you live. In some places, the waste management facility picks up the garbage and then sends it to a materials recovery facility to be sorted. At the MRF, reusable and recyclable items are taken out either by weight on a conveyer belt or by hand. Otherwise, trash is taken straight to a landfill. In places where materials recovery facilities aren’t used, it is extra important to make sure that people sort their own trash and recycle as much as possible.
