Late afternoon sunlight illuminates Ryaln Whaley with mom Jen, and dad Nate as they look over process of recycling the incoming material from a catwalk at the Great Lakes Recycling facility March 30. Members of the Dearborn Sustainability Coalition visited the facility in Huron Township for a first-hand view of the process that handles recycled materials from Dearborn’s big green curbside bins. The very labor-intensive process at the state of the art facility is called a single stream recycling because residents don’t need to separate the recyclables themselves. Incoming materials are delivered to the tipping floor, with a capacity of 8,000 tons, and then fed through a series of conveyors tended by fast moving workers. At the end the separated products are compressed into large bales and then sold to companies who use them to make new products.

A half-dozen workers sort incoming material on the fast moving conveyor belt at the beginning of the line. Plastic bags are fed to the overhead suction tubes and cardboard, newspapers, plastic and metal are quickly tossed into separate bins in the labor-intensive process.
