Brown lid bin - recyclables
What happens to my recycling?
Your recycling is collected and kept separate. There are two compartments in the truck:
- paper and cardboard are sent to a facility to be further sorted in to the different standards of paper and card, bulked and sent directly to be recycled in to paper, toilet roll and much more
- glass, plastic and othe recyclable materials are sent to facilities in Alfreton and Leeds to be sorted into different materials and grades, and then sent to a variety of processing plants be recycled in to something new. Your old plastic bottles could be recycled and become a new plastic bottle or even a fleece jacket
