How much paper and card do we collect?

In 2020/21 we collected almost 7,500 tonnes of paper and card, this was an increase of 7% compared with the previous year, due to the increase in home deliveries during the pandemic.

Where does your paper and food recycling go?

All the paper and card that we collect is taken to the DS Smith Kemsley paper mill in Kent where it is reprocessed into new cardboard packaging. 

Did you know you could be receiving a delivery in a cardboard box made from recycling we collected only 14 days previously?
