So that’s what happens

Thursday, February 24, 2011

Sheffield Heeley MP Meg Munn recently visited the Veolia Materials Recovery Facility in Beighton to find out what happened to the city’s paper and cardboard after kerbside collection. She met Wayne Draycott, Site Manager, and was shown around the facility which deals with 19,000 tonnes of paper and cardboard per year. There are a number of processes following delivery of the material, and following the sorting procedure is re-packaged and shipped to places such as China to be reused.


Meg met a number of the staff and discussed with Wayne the various issues about kerbside recycling. There will be a change in the collection procedure in April with Sheffield residents being able to chose where their paper goes, either in the blue bin or blue box. Veolia are concerned that this could cause contamination, but had faith that the people of Sheffield will continue with their good track record of Recycling.


Meg said:


“It was fascinating to see the work of the Materials Recovery Facility first hand. It came about following my visit at the beginning of last year to Veolia’s recycling plant on Bernard Road. That centre generates electricity for the National Grid and heat for the city’s energy network from the waste that Sheffield residents put in their black wheeled bins. Having seen that I was keen to see what happens to the paper.


Veolia are proud of the success they have achieved so far in Sheffield. They are looking to the future as more measures are introduced to help families recycle with greater ease.”
