What happens to your recycling

We take your recycling to a transfer site in Hereford or Leominster where it is loaded into larger containers and taken to our EnviroSort facility in Worcestershire.

When your recycling arrives at EnviroSort it is all mixed together. EnviroSort uses hand sorting and a mechanical process to separate out all the materials into their different types.

Watch the video below to follow your recycling's journey.

Once the materials have been sorted they are sent to re-processors in the UK and Europe to be recycled.
