Ever wondered where your plastic bottles, metal cans, and other recyclables go when they leave your blue bin? If you live in Vermont, chances are good that they’re headed for the CSWD Materials Recovery Facility (MRF – rhymes with “smurf”!) in Williston. This is where all of those materials get sorted, baled, and shipped off to market. In this video, we take you backstage to see what really goes on in this amazing facility.
Watch as your blue bin resources travel along conveyors, past spinning discs, over mechanical paddle arms, and through the fast-moving hands of hard-working people on their magical journey through the MRF.
