What happens to my recycling?

Brown lid recycling bin

Your recycling is collected and kept separate. There are two compartments in the truck;

Your insert items (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.

Recyclables from the main body of the bin are sent to facilities in Alfreton and Leeds to be sorted into different materials and grades, and then sent to a variety reprocessors be recycled in to something new. Your old plastic bottles could be recycled and become a new plastic bottle or even a fleece jacket!
