2018/19 Bin Calendars are on their way
Where does our recycling go?
A Materials Recovery Facility (MRF) is where recyclable materials that are collected from households are sorted into different types (e.g. plastics, cardboard, paper, metal) using a mixture of manual and automated methods. When the materials have been sorted they are sent to reprocessors and manufacturers where they are used to create new products.
Recycle by plastic grade or product?
The MRF machinery processes the recycling through product type and not opposed to the grade/PET numbers. The machinery is programmed to identify products such as listed on our new bin stickers. MRF also have manual sorters sifting through waste to help reduce contamination in our recycling. To find out more on what can be recycled, click on the find out more link below.
