What happens to your mixed recycling

Materials are collected and sent to a Materials Recovery Facility (MRF), where they are sorted and sent to different manufacturers for repurpose.

Recycled materials are made into new products that are used here in the UK. For example, all newsprint is now made from 100% recycled paper. The UK also exports recyclable materials to other countries.
