Many people have heard of recycling processing facilities like The American Recycling Center, but wonder exactly what process their recyclable items go through in order to be made into new, recycled goods.
We would like to answer that question by taking you on a virtual tour through each of the steps your recyclables take at the American Recycling Center. From the moment the truck arrives, to the moment those items are baled and ready to be sold, this is your backstage pass to the entire sorting and processing journey.

It’s only been four months since the American Recycling Center and attached Interactive Learning Center had its grand opening in April. In that short time over 200 people have come to take a tour and learn about recycling and where their recyclables go when they get to our facility.
Tours are held every Tuesday at 10am and led by American employees who are well versed in our ThinkBeforeYouThrow® recycling program, as well as how the facility’s sorting equipment works.
The purpose of the tours is to educate the community about recycling, how items are recycled and most importantly
why we should all recycle.
Individuals and groups from all walks of life have taken the tour. From powerful corporate industry leaders to college students, families, presidents of Home Owners Associations, boy scout troops and everything in between.
