Each Zero Waste Bag is opened upon receipt and visually inspected for any non-compliant materials, then consolidated for processing in bulk. The consolidated materials are then manually sorted into categories based on secondary stage mechanical processing requirements.

Clothing is size-reduced through shredding and metals are then removed through magnetized and electrostatic sortation. Sorted metals are smelted and formed for use in secondary metals manufacturing. Shredded clothing is dewoven through mechanized carding to create single-orientation fibers and sold for use in filled applications.
