Recycle Week - See Where Your Recycling Goes

Take a trip round Wandsworth's new recycling plant

Apply now for a chance to take a trip around the new recycling plant in Wandsworth on June 22nd.

The council has arranged the trip to mark Recycle Week. The first 20 people to sign up will be taken around the Western Riverside Waste Authority's newly-built Materials Recycling Facility (MRF), opened earlier this year by the Princess Royal.
The new facility means that all plastic bottles, pots, tubs and trays can now go in orange sacks and orange-lidded recycling banks.

The visit will give a group of local people a chance to see what happens to their recycling after they put it in an orange sack or orange-lidded bank. The MRF sorts the materials, which are then sent off to be made into new products.
