Field Trip to Sims Recycling Center

Members of the Sanitation Coalition took a field trip to the Sims Recycling Center, a state of the art recycling center in Brooklyn. They learned about how the waste stream is divided up into metal and glass for which there are markets and plastic for which there is less demand. Eadaoin Quinn told us that as there is no market for plastic bags it is important to limit one’s use of them.
