What happens to your pink sacks?
What happens after your pink sacks are collected?
|1.||You place your recycling together in pink sacks, making recycling as easy as possible for you.|
|2.||Pink sacks are collected from you tiped at a transfer station in Rochford, they are then bulk hauled to a Materials Recycling Facility (MRF).|
|3.||At the MRF all the materials are sorted back into the different materials and baled ready to be sent for recycling.|
The materials are then recycled back into new products, e.g. a new plastic bottle or a new newspaper ready for you to buy and use again. This takes place in UK and further afield
