Office trip to Balcones Resources to see where the recycling goes and how it is going to be separated. Thanks to Balcones Resources for the tour, which was very interesting!
Trip | Balcones Resources
The recycling is separated in various ways. One machine blows the light trash away, another works with magnets, but there is still a lot of manual work necessary. In Austin, we put all recycling in one bin, so these facilities are necessary ;) When everything is separated, it is pressed together and the blocks are sold to be reused.
People of Austin definitely drink too much beer, especially Bud Light!
