What happens to my Waste and Recycling?

Uttlesford District Council asks you to separate your waste into different coloured bins; we even ask you to take your textiles to recycling banks located throughout the district.

But have you ever wondered what actually happens to your recycling once we have collected it? It's taken to a Materials Recycling Facility (MRF) in Crayford, Kent.

You can see a video of a MRF here, along with a selection of other recycling videos here.
