        Visiting a Recycling Plant

        About half of the paper we use in our daily lives has been recycled. The process begins when paper is picked up from a recycling bin and taken to a sorting facility, where items are separated and baled. The materials are then taken away to a facility where they are cleaned, possibly de-inked, shredded, and blended with other similar material, such as paper board, office paper, or newspaper. The batched material is then converted into a new end product. In this video segment from ZOOM, a cast member visits a material recovery center to watch this process unfold.
