Full Disclosure: I am a board member of Athens Hocking Recycling Center.
That said I recycled and considered it an essential part of my life and world view long before I joined the board. Seeing how the process works behind the scenes reinforced the concept and value of recycling for me and you are invited to see this process as well.
I have toured the facility and it is pretty cool process wise. Conveyor belts and workers are sorting material to where it is baled. Below is a cool video from the AHRC site to get a feel for it.
Would you like to tour the MRF? (Materials Recovery Facility) Tours will be given on America Recycles Day!
