The single-stream recycling process takes the hassle out of recycling. ‘Single-stream’ essentially means that the materials are all put into one ‘stream,’ instead of two. This allows you to recycle without separating paper, glass, and plastic before they are set at the curb; instead, we have machines that do the sorting. All materials go into one bin and our truck delivers them to our single-stream facility for the process to begin. This process has been said to be an important step toward meeting our goal of building a zero waste community by 2020!
Here are some photos, so you can get a sneak peek of the process:
Oak Ridge Waste had their grand opening of their single-stream recycling facility in Shelton, CT! This is the second single-stream facility that Oak Ridge Waste operates from; the other station is located in Danbury, CT.
