The City of Orlando has been touted as a leader in the fight against climate change. This month Orlando was recognized by former New York City mayor and UN special envoy on climate change Michael Bloomberg for its use of climate friendly vehicles and solar arrays.

Working to reduce emissions is one thing… but what about working to reduce waste? To find out what happens to the stuff people in Orange County recycle- we took a trip last summer to the Orange County Materials Recycling Facility, and on this episode of Intersection we revisit a conversation about what goes into Central Florida recycling bins, and where that recycling goes next.
