What happens to my waste?

Recyclable Waste

Recyclable materials from the grey or green bags are collected and taken to Wasteserv’s Material Recovery Facilities where they are individually processed both mechanically and manually, to remove any undesirable items.  Recyclables are then compacted in large bales and sold on a monthly basis to waste brokers who export these for further treatment and recycling abroad.

Check waste collection days in your locality.
