Recycling Station

Recycling Stations are sorting centers: spaces for voluntary or encouraged delivery of recyclable materials, often operated by Waste Pickers Cooperatives. In this place, people learn about the different types of materials and its potential for recyclability, as well as the importance of its cleanliness and separation. They begin reflecting on their choices of consumption, noting that there are materials of low or no absorption by local chain of recycling. From these centers, materials are sorted and separated by type of ‘bales’ (blocks of pure or poorly mixed material), ready for recycling.
