The recycling is taken to a depot in Bowling Back Lane in the city. Household waste is also brought here and taken to landfill, and it is also a recycling “bring” site.
Any recycling needing separating is sorted by hand into skips.
The garden waste is taken by SJ Butterfield, an agricultural contractor.
It is shredded and mixed with sludge from Yorkshire Water’s treatment plants at Esholt and Dewsbury. In due course it becomes compost for parks and so on.
