Recycling is nothing new, but few among us have seen what happens to our plastic, paper, metal, and glass once it departs from our blue, curbside bins. Today, however, the photographer Mathieu Young takes us on an enlightening tour of the Waste Management Materials Recovery Facility in Pico Rivera, California. It's a recycling facility that sorts nearly 6,000 tons of material per month, and it's quite a load to take in.
