Waste Sort ChallengeRelease Date: 2023-05-01
What is a Waste Sort and Why is it Important?
Conducting a waste sort helps to ensure we are recycling right and recovering as much recyclable material as possible. A waste sort involves selecting samples of your trash and sorting out the recyclable materials from the non-recyclable materials, and categorizing recyclable materials by type. This helps us understand what is actually being recycled, and how much is being lost.
