since march this year redditch council have had all the unfortunates who have to suffer living in this cess pit they call a town recycling their rubbish.can anybody tell me what then do with it? I think they ship it abroad because no mention is ever made about what they turn the recycled rubbish into.

They put it in landfill sites with the rest. The government targets merely stipulate how much you need to collect as a proportion of the total to get central government cash for doing it. They take it down the tip like everything else ;)

If what you say is true Rory its a disgrace and just shows how we are all being taken for mugs.

Quoted from this message

Not really. What's the point is building all of the recycling infrastructure without first proving that the public are willing/able to make it worthwhile.

If the government had done it the other way around and it didn't work, JoP would be complaining about the waste of money through lack of planning.

At least this way, the money we've had from Europe so far will go towards building the recycling plants.
