Where does your kerbside recycling go?

Putting the right things in your recycling bin is just the start of a whole new life for your recyclables. Before items such as bottles, cans, paper, plastics, glass, cardboard and aluminium are turned into new products, they are sent to a Material Recovery Facility (MRF) to be sorted into different streams and baled, ready for domestic or export sale.


Look behind the scenes at the process that prepares your unwanted recyclables to be turned into something new.
