What happens to my rubbish?
We collect over 150 tonnes of household waste every day. Most of this is processed at an MBT (Mechanical Biological Treatment) facility in Dorset.
They sort it to remove metals from the rubbish. The biodegradable fraction is then composted into a low-quality material used to cap landfills and neutralise contaminated land.
Some items are also processed for energy recovery and a small amount is sent to landfill.
