Rendering plant in East Van

Through the wonders of Google Maps, I learned that there is a rendering plant a couple of blocks from my house - West Coast Reduction Ltd.

The picture above is a screenshot from a Flash movie explaining the rendering process. Apparently, rendering is recycling. Also, french fries are a 5th food group? Type of animal?

I especially enjoyed being able to click through the separate parts of the rendering process, and how everything ends up as Fight Club-style soap or protein meal for "feed". Fun!
