Where Newport’s recycling goes and how it’s recycled.
How it’s recycled …
The above destinations and figures are for Newport as a whole, NOT just household recycling.
At Wastesavers we send the materials we collect to the companies listed below.
These are often multi national companies with global markets. They sell clean raw materials to manufacturers all over the world (including here in the UK).
Plastic, for example, may be sold in the UK or exported as plastic pellets, aluminium as aluminium blocks, paper as giant paper rolls (jumbo roll) etc.
