Where is the waste and recycling that we collect processed?
We all know that our waste and recycling is collected at certain times each day, but do you actually know where your waste is sent to afterwards? Collecting waste and recycling is only the first easier part of the process before it finally gets recycled.
We are proud that almost all of the waste we collect is disposed of in a facility local to Westminster, unlike that of other waste collectors who often export waste or travel across the country to dispose of it.
By keeping services local to our base in Westminster, we’re helping to minimise the pollution to our environment through harmful emissions — something that’s very important to us. It also ensures adherence with the London Mayor’s London Environment Strategy which aims to keep waste resources within the M25 ensuring other communities are not burdened with it.
So, where exactly does your waste begin its journey to becoming fully recycled?
