Sustainable Seward Tip of the Week

It is a common misconception that recyclable materials are simply sent to landfills instead of being truly recycled.  In Seward, all of our recyclables are baled and sent to Anchorage.  From there, the materials are sorted and sent to plants where they are recycled and re-purposed.  One way that recyclable plastics are used is for clothing.  There are companies that are using recycled plastic water bottles to make shirts!  To learn more about what your recycling becomes and for more information about recycling, check out this link!
