Tracking Philadelphian’s recycled materials

    You rinse the cans, empty the bottles, occasionally peel the labels. Some of you probably even signed up for rewards points, slapped a sticker on your blue bucket and saved a few cents on more canned products. But where does all that stuff go when you’re done with it?
