A new, state-of-the-art recycling facility has opened in Stratford Conn. that has the ability to handle 50 million containers a year.

The new facility, which opened earlier this week, has one goal in mind: make returning recyclable bottles and cans as easy as possible. The machines at the recycling facility can process 100 bottles in a minute.

“You don’t need to separate them. What that means is you can bring plastic, cans and glass altogether, in any box bag or whatever you bring it in, dump it into our automated machines and you will automatically be paid on-site for an unlimited quantity of bottles and cans to be returned,” said Conrad Cutler.
