Where does my recycling go?

Best Trash takes your recycling to Independent Texas Recyclers (ITR), as do other recycling companies. ITR actually hand sorts your recycling on conveyor belts. From the time your recycling leaves your home, to the time it arrives at ITR, Best Trash vehicles are being videoed. Cameras, that are monitored by Samsara, watch and track Best vehicles from the time the engines start at our yard in the morning to the time they return to our office. The vehicles are also geo-tracked and the history is saved along with weigh bills from each and every load of recycling. You can rest assured that your recycling is actually getting to a certified recycling facility. We believe that if you go through all the effort to recycle, your recycling should actually be recycled. Best Trash goes the extra mile to be accountable with how we handle your recycling. This video shows some raw footage of what happens to your recycling once it arrives at ITR.
