What Happens to Your Recyclables?

Once picked up, your cans, bottles, plastics, paper and glass go to a Material Recovery Facility, or MRF.

The MRF is where items are separated, prepared and shipped out for their next life as new products. All recyclables collected through CVWMA programs are processed at a MRF in Chester, Virginia. The facility is owned and operated by TFC Recycling.
