It's important to remember “It's not just trash anymore.”  Like every other raw material, your recyclables have to meet manufacturers’ quality standards.  

While you can make glass from glass and newspaper from newspaper, you can’t make anything from garbage.  

Incorrectly prepared materials aren’t recyclable; they go to the landfill.
