In this episode, we talk to Tom Outerbridge. He is the general manager of Sims Municipal Recycling in Brooklyn with more than 30 years of experience in waste management.
During this episode, we dig a little into why recycling is important as well as what are some of the items that they receive that cannot be recycled. Spoiler alert your chips packets is, unfortunately, one of them. We also look at why plastic is downgraded each time it is recycled and how aluminium can be recycled indefinitely.
Where can people find Tom?
