Where does the trash and recycling that AACPS generates go?

Posted by:

All trash waste goes to a local sorting facility where it then goes to one of many different landfills (PA, MD, VA) depending on their current capacity limits.

All recycled items go to a local recycling sorting center to be separated into different groups (cardboard, paper, glass, plastic, metals). Depending on current markets, recycled items are sold and shipped to different industries all over the world.
