At the recycling center, we'll rethink our recycling and waste. You may think your old stuff is transformed into new bottles, paper, and cans here, but this is just the beginning. What happens to recycling when it leaves your home? What if you recycle the wrong thing? How does recycling create jobs in the Carolinas? What can you do to reduce the waste you create?

 Registration required.
