Where do Milwaukee's Recyclables Go?

Recyclable materials are valuable resources for making products that you use every day. After yours are sorted and baled at Milwaukee's Materials Recovery Facility, they are sent off to domestic and international markets where they will be processed into new recycled-content products*.
