What happens to your recycling?

The mixed recycling we collect is bulked at Veolia's Alton site and then taken to their MRF Materials Recovery Facility (MRF), one of the most advanced facilities in Europe. The sorted materials are then delivered to manufacturers within the UK to be used again.

Food waste 

Our food waste goes to two sites, the Biogen Greenfinch bio-gas plant in Bedfordshire and to Bio Collectors in Mitcham.  The natural bacteria breaks down the food waste until it forms a rich liquid fertiliser. This is then used by local farmers.
