1. You buy it.
2. You use all of it
3. You recycle it.
4. The recycle truck picks it up and brings it to SOCRRA’s recycle center.
5. SOCRRA sorts and bales the material.
6. We send it to a manufacturer for processing.
7. It gets made into something new again.
8. It goes back to the store.
9. And you purchase it again.
This process happens over and over again!!!
