Waste Management believes that every day is a reason to celebrate #EarthDay. The theme for this year’s celebration is #RestoreOurEarth,  and a reminder that the end- of- life for materials can be the start of something new. Whether you’re at work or your residence, recycling is a great way to make that happen.  But have you ever wondered how your recyclables get from your container to the processor where a new material is made?

“You can help us recycle properly by knowing what you can and can’t put in your collection cart. When in doubt, leave it out and then check it out. Talk to your local providers or your community leaders for more information on recycling programs” -Michelle Martin, Plant Manager Material Recycling Facility
