VIDEO ~ What Happens to Norfolk’s Recycling

Ever wondered what happens to your recycled waste after it gets picked up from your property?

This fascinating video of the Materials Recycling Facility (MRF) at Costessey shows what happens to all the recyclables collected by the district, borough and city councils from households in Norfolk.

The waste is sorted automatically by advanced new technology into various “waste streams” such as paper, cardboard, metal tins, plastic containers and glass. The processed materials are then re-supplied to manufacturers as clean raw materials.
