Paper’s Passage: From Waste to Product by NYC Sanitation

Made from 5,902 photos by NYC Sanitation‘s Director of Photography Michael Anton, Paper’s Passage: From Waste to Product shows us where paper and cardboard waste goes after the New York City recycling trucks drive away from your front stoop. Bonus: stop motion mixed with Duke Ellington‘s Jazz Violin Sessions – Limbo Jazz.

This vid doesn’t really get into the nitty, gritty, pulpy process between old dirty scraps and those clean sheets on rolls, but you can watch that next in this classic Sesame Street: Old paper, new paper.
