    Materials Recovery Facility (Recycling Center/Depot)

    Materials Recovery Facilities serve as an important part of our recycling process. This is where recyclables are sorted and baled by commodity, and then shipped to paper mills, glass plants, and other manufacturers to be made into new products. Some MRFs accept material from the public.

    We are pleased to invite school and community groups from areas served by Recology CleanScapes to visit our recycling center to learn how paper, plastics, and more are sorted and recycled. This free two hour experience at our state-of-the-art facility in South Seattle will help participants understand the recycling system and how their actions affect the process.
