Delivering recycling to a Materials Recycling facility.


After your recycling is collected it is taken to a Materials Recycling Facility to be sorted. The separated materials are then taken to reprocessing plants to be turned into new products.

All waste that cannot be recycled is taken to a waste transfer station where it is bulked and loaded onto barge containers to transport it to the Energy from Waste Facility at Belvedere in the London Borough of Bexley.

We offer free tours of our facility for schools, community groups and residents.  You can find out more and request a visit here (schools) or here (residents).
