They are all over the country. You can even find one right here in Normal, Illinois! Recyclable materials fly off the floor and float along the second story of the building. Materials fly this way and that without any explanation of what is happening. Before you know it, steel cans fly off the belt and disappear into thin air. Not too far from there Aluminum cans are being thrown 3 feet away! In other areas in the building you see bottles flying off and disappearing, and paper falls into a black hole, never to be seen again!
Ok, so maybe it isn’t haunted but the sorting of the material by sophisticated machinery makes the process feel like there is paranormal influence. Most people would say they have never seen ghostly spirits, much like a material recovery facility. It is an amazing thing to see, and you can catch multiple glimpses of the spirits in action right on YouTube. Did you see anything you may have recently recycled?
Many municipalities have made it easier than ever to recycle more materials than ever before, and a lot of that is thanks to the sophisticated (though possibly slightly haunted) material recovery facilities. Once your material enters the system to be sorted it takes less than a minute until it is separated into its own storage area, waiting to be baled. After the spirits in the center bale the material it is sent out all over the country, and the world, to be made into new products.
It is all so magical that just maybe there are witches involved, putting spells on our recycling!
