Dry recyclables are all separated at our plant at Greendale in Woodbury Salterton. They are baled and sent to a range of processors. After processing they are sent to manufacturers to be used as secondary raw materials to make new products. Most of the processors are located in the UK but sometimes we use processors based in Europe or Asia.
You’ll find a list of our recycling destinations below. We use several different processors depending on changes in the market. We are unable to name the contractors, as the details are commercially sensitive, but you can see here that they are mostly based in the UK and subject to rigorous vetting by Devon County Council or our contractor Suez.
