Household recycling centres

3. Find out where your waste goes

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

It is important that the materials brought into the sites are treated properly and tracked until they have been:

  • recycled
  • composted
  • disposed of

You can see where all the materials we receive are taken to in our recycling destinations guide.
