Plastic and other materials can be recycled and turned into something else. Recycling helps our planet. Do you recycle at home? At school? Read on to see how recycling works.
Keep It Separated
Put each material into a different bin. This will help recycling centers sort it all out later on.
What Can I Recycle?
Paper can be recycled. So can metal, plastic, and glass. Give those a rinse first.
Here Comes the Truck
A recycling truck will come to take your materials away. Now they’re headed to a recycling center.
The materials will be sorted. They might be compressed, or crushed. They’re on their way to becoming something new.
