In recognition of America Recycles Day, Patch and Metra4.com took a trip to Waste Management's processing plant located off the Cottman Ave. exit of I-95.

Representatives from Waste Management demonstrated where the trucks dump the collected materials and how they are sorted, processed and baled before shipped off to mills throughout the world.
