Dry recycling (cans, plastics, paper, card and glass) is sent to reprocessing facilities where it is prepared for recycling.
The changes will help us use more outlets within the UK, rather than having to send the material to markets abroad for recycling.
Food recycling is taken to an anaerobic digestion facility in Cardiff. The process produces renewable energy that is put back into the national grid to power homes and communities, and a compost type material that can be used to fertilize land.
Garden waste is taken to a facility in Cardiff where it is turned into compost.
Black bag waste is taken to an Energy Recovery Facility where it is turned into energy.
