Where do most recycled materials go?



  1. 0 Votes

    This depends on your local recycling center. For example, Western disposal sends their soda and water bottles to South Carolina to be processed, while paper goes to either Arizona or the Pacific Northwest. Glass materials, on the other hand, stay in Colorado to be recycled into beer bottles. However, keep in mind that recycling centers are still business establishments just like any other. Since the biggest market for plastics is China, most of our plastic is shipped overseas. Unfortunately, not all recyclables are processed properly as they may have different standards overseas or the cost may be too high.
