  1. 1. What Do Your Recycled Items Get Turned Into? http://www.andrews-waste.co.uk/
  2. 2. Paper And Card  When paper and card is recycled it gets taken to a Paper Mill.  Anything non-recyclable is removed. (Staples, Ribbons, etc…)  Water is added to the paper to make it into a soupy gloop.  The gloop is then screened, cleaned and de-inked. It can then be made into new paper!
  3. 3. Plastic  Plastic is sorted into separate groups depending on the type and colour.  It can either be shredded and used as filling for things such as sleeping bags, duvets and even business suits!  It can also be melted down and made into CD/DVD cases, carrier bags, garden furniture and more!
  4. 4. Glass  Glass items are first screened to make sure all non-glass items are removed.  Glass can either be crushed or melted.  Most glass is made into new glass items.  It can also be used as decorative finishes on building sites and can even be used in Golf bunkers!
  5. 5. Steel cans  Recycled steel is melted down with Iron Ore and Limestone.  The molten metal is then poured into moulds and chopped into blocks.  Then it can be made into new cans, vehicles and even parts of buildings!
  6. 6. Textiles  Textile items are checked by hand and are sorted into groups depending on it’s type and quality.  Any clothes which can be re-used are sent to developing countries.  Any materials which aren’t suitable for re-use are shredded and made into rags and felts.  Woollen products are often pulled and made into new yarn.
