What happens to stuff that is recycled?
It is able to be precessed so that the materials do not end up as waste in a landfill and instead are used again. Depending on the material and the purpose for that specific material, it can be recycled into another product (many plastics are made of recycled plastics, and this often happens with papers, too) or it can be used for energy to power other devices in place of fuels or electricity.
