Where does my recycling go?
All recycling bin materials are sorted by VISY at Wingfield into different categories or 'streams' of mixed paper and cardboard, steel, aluminium, glass and plastics.
After the materials have been separated into different streams, they are crushed into bales and transported to various manufacturers where they are reprocessed into new products such as glass jars, plastic containers, cardboard packaging and steel products. Markets for these products are still strong.
All material from City of Marion’s green organics bins go to Peats Soils where the material is turned into nutrient-rich compost, which is bagged and sold from garden centres around South Australia.
