Newspaper the paper is taken to a de-inking place. this is where the newspaper ink is separated from the fibers.the old paper pulverized. detergent is added to dissolve the ink. Then screens remove things that could contaminate the paper like dirt and bits of tape. the remaining mush is bleached and mixed with wood mush to strengthen it. the watery mixture is poured onto a wire and a conveyor belt moves the screen which lets the extra moisture to drain. it is then steamrolled for extra drying.

Tin Cans are prepared for recycling by being washed thoroughly and chemically treated to remove other metals. Next they are moved to an electrolysis bath where the tin is formed into big chunks. After these two steps have been done the tin is nearing the end of its recycling process. All that is left is for the tin to melted down into ingots. The ingots are 99.98 percent pure tin and are used in the chemical and pharmaceutical industries.

If we take our used motor oil to drop-off stations keeps the oil from polluting our waterways. you first drop it off in a non breakable container with a lid on it. The oil is then taken and is poured into large drums to keep for storage. When the drums are all filled a truck comes and pumps it into a large tank and takes it to an oil processing center. The processor tests the oil for lead and other contaminants. All water is removed form the solution by either settling or boiling. The remaining oil is mixed with other oils to create an oil that is environmentally safe to burn in any boilers. Used Motor oil used to be refined but the additives made it difficult to be re-fined.
