In pictures: Recycling in Bradford
Bottles and cans

The glass and cans are taken about 25 miles away to Glass Recycling UK Ltd, in the village of Carlton, near Barnsley.

The cans are flattened, cleaned and separated - the steel is taken out by magnets and the aluminium by eddy currents.

The metals are then sent off to a local metal reclaimer.

But glass is the firm's major business. It collects thousands of tonnes every week from many different council collections and bottle banks.
