URBANA -- One way to cut down on what's dumped in landfills is recycling. Cory Mathis, the operational manager at Mack's Twin City Recycling, says people are surprised to find out how many different things you can recycle.

It's not just plastic and bottles. People can get paid to bring in some products and give new life to old ones. Mathis says they sometimes get about a dozen new customers a day. Workers fill a couple of semis each day.
