Where does my recycling go?
What happens to my recycling sacks and film packaging?
Film is a low-quality plastic grade and is not accepted as a recyclable material at the MRF, with the exception of the clear recycling sacks that the mixed recycling is collected in. Over the last three years, due to the lack of reprocessing plants available to recycle this material, it has not always been possible to send this material to be recycled and, when that is the case, the film is sent to Energy from Waste to be converted to electricity.
