We all know the basics on what
happens with recyclable materials such as paper and fibers, glass and plastics,
food scraps, yard trimmings. But what about what’s left over? What happens to
electronics, plastic bags and bubble wrap, Styrofoam, small appliances, durable
plastics, and other items not accepted in the normal residential recycling stream?
Unfortunately, we also know that most of this ends up in our landfills.
