That's why it's important to reduce, reuse and recycle - it's a process we are all responsible for. In this video, LeVar takes you through the journey of a recycled good so that you can see exactly what happens to all of those recycled materials that you put into the bins, after the truck picks them up. Take a look to see how things like glass, plastic, paper and metal are recycled as men and machine work side-by-side to sort, clean and transform our trash into something new. Special Thanks To: E.J.
