Sign up now for the next round of tours to see what goes on behind the scenes at Wandsworth’s recycling plant. The tours give residents a chance to see what happens to their recycling after they put it in an orange sack or orange-lidded bank.

The Smugglers Way Materials Recycling Facility (MRF) sorts the materials, which are then sent off to be made into new products.

The new MRF, opened last year, has meant an increase in the types of plastic packaging that can be recycled.  Plastic bottles, pots, tubs and trays can all now go in orange sacks and orange-lidded recycling banks. This has been welcomed by the council, because it cuts rubbish disposal costs and helps keep council tax down.

The next tours is ona March 22  between noon and 1pm.
