Where does my recycling go?

Before sending any recyclable material to a third party, in addition to the “Duty of Care” checks it is legally required to carry out, Cory also carries out its own extensive due diligence process to ensure that, as far as is reasonably possible, all of its material will be subsequently managed legally and in an environmentally responsible manner.
