Garten Services, a recycling facility in Oregon, where paper and metals still have markets but most plastic is thrown away. All plastic must first go through a recycling facility like this one, but only a fraction of the plastic produced actually winds up getting recycled.

And get a look at the whole picture, including what is happening with our plastics here in Summit and Wasatch counties, as well as what is happening on a national scale.
