Every day, millions of people throw away the things that they don't want anymore. It might be broken, maybe it's been replaced by something new or it could be something that's been used or emptied.
Trash is something that cannot be used again. It goes into the trash cart and then is collected and taken to the landfill.
Recycling is something that can be used again! It must be rinsed out or folded and then put in the recycling cart. It then gets collected and goes to the recycling center.
