What Happens to the Materials Collected at ReWorks Recycling Days?

  • Glass Bottles & Jars
    • The properties of glass allow it to be infinitely recyclable.  However, there are challenges to recycling glass bottles and jars collected in home recycling carts and sorted at a material recovery facility (MRF).  Not only does glass being sorted at a MRF become abrasive and damaging to MRF equipment, but also MRF glass is contaminated with other materials and often requires a secondary processor to remove the contamination for it to be made into a marketable glass cutlet. The feasibility of recycling MRF glass can be cost prohibitive due to several factors including limited availability of secondary glass cleaning processors. 
    • Glass bottles and jars collected at ReWorks Recycling Days do not go to a MRF.   It is collected by Repeat Glass then transported directly to a facility that recycles glass only.
  • Cooking Oil
    • Cooking oil collected at ReWorks Recycling Days is processed by Otto By Products Inc. into animal feed ingredients, alternative fuels and soaps.
  • Campaign Signs
    • Campaign signs collected at ReWorks Recycling Days are recycled by Legacy Polymer or Northcoast Recycling Specialists. Coroplast signs are ground into plastic pellets for re-use in other plastic materials.  Film plastic signs are recycled into products used by the automotive industry & paperboard signs are recycled into other fiber-based products.  Metal frames from signs are recycled at City Scrap & Salvage, a local scrap metal recycler.
