Ever wonder happens to your recycling once it leaves the bin?

Arlington County recently released a video that takes you inside a recycling facility. It shows how items are sorted, where they go, and what’s made from them.

Your host? A bathrobe-clad man carrying a coffee cup labeled “dork.” Check it out for good info and good cheesy fun.

An area resident since 1997, Donna C. is a DC outsider. When she’s not running her writing and Web business, she’s running around the city, exploring the great outdoors, or trying to figure out how best to go green. See why she loves DC.

  2. If anyone wanted to see it up close and personal, you can also go tour the Montgomery County recycling center. It’s well worth the trip if you’re into that kind of thing.

  3. Reginald, I’m sure Arlington would appreciate your sharing the video!

    And Farrar, that’s a great suggestion. It’s pretty fascinating to see how these things work.

    Thanks to you both!
