Household recycling centres

3. Find out where your waste goes

Most of the materials brought to the household recycling centres can be recycled, more than 70% was recycled or composted in 2015-16.

It is important that the materials brought in to the sites are treated properly, and tracked until they have been recycled, composted or disposed of. You can see where all the materials we receive are taken to in our recycling destinations guide.
