Mixed recycling is when all recyclables can be mixed together in both the recycling container and recycling truck.

The sorting of materials is done at the MRF, rather than by the recycling drivers.  Currently SOCRRA collects materials in two streams – paper, and everything else (plastic, metal, glass containers), requiring recycling drivers to separate the two streams.  Now with mixed recycling, recycling will be as easy as the trash!
