New York City fills recycle bins with tons and tons of discarded paper. That cast-off fibre lives to serve another day, thanks to the wonders of recycling. NYC Sanitation’s director of photography Michael Anton followed that voyage from start to finish, creating this beautiful timelapse of the process.
