“How are recyclable materials sorted?”

With the advent of mass recycling, there has to be some sort of way that recyclable material is properly sorted to ensure that everything goes in it’s place. The solution is called a Material recovery facility, or MRF. MRFs are specialized plants dedicated to taking in recyclable material and making them reusable. There are two types of MRFs, clean and dirty. Clean MRFs take in purely recyclable waste and turn it into usable material, while dirty MRFs accepts “mixed” waste (i.e partially reusable and partially corrosive) and separates the recyclable material from the non-recyclable.
