iFri / http://www.sciencefriday.com Every day at the Sims Municipal Recycling facility in Sunset Park, Brooklyn, roughly 800 tons of recyclables meander through a tangle of machines, scanners, and conveyor belts. Mountains of discarded metals, glass, and plastic are sifted, sorted, and bundled into bails, eventually transforming into marketable commodities.
