Recyclables are manufactured in to new products; some in the United States and some in other countries around the world. Generally, they are manufactured back in to the same or similar products but sometimes they become a different product. For example, plastic soda bottles are often shredded and re-purposed as insulation in winter clothing, automobile interiors or other consumer goods.
