Does my recycling actually get recycled?

Yes! Items from your blue cart are taken to the Pratt Recycling Facility, located at the City of Denton Landfill, where they are sorted and sold to manufacturers who make them into new products. In fact, from the moment you drop your cardboard or paper into your cart, it is made into a brand new 100% recycled cardboard box within two weeks.
