Picking up recycled cardboard and plastic
Do you ever wonder what happens to the cardboard, plastic, and other things that you set out for recycling every other week?

A forklift placed the pallets with compacted cardboard and plastic onto the back of the semi trailer, and then some mechanism in the floor of the trailer moved them forward so the next pallets could be loaded.
