What happens to your used plastic packaging that you recycle? Watch the below video to find out what happens to your recyclable plastic once it leaves your home.
Your recycling creates jobs and income opportunities for thousands of collectors who take your valuable recyclables to depots.

These bales are then transported to recyclers who crush the plastics into flakes, wash and dry them and turn them into recycled pellets. These pellets can then be made in to new products!
