Step 3: recycle more. Recycling materials saves valuable resources and can conserve energy

The more we recycle and buy recycled content products, the more competitive and available those products will become, supporting and driving demand for high quality recycled materials.

Recycling materials saves valuable resources and can conserve energy, and when we recycle locally it can help to further reduce a community's carbon emissions from transporting new goods long distances.

At Waterbeach we operate a Materials Recycling Facility (MRF) which contains machines that separate different materials including plastics, cardboard, metals and paper ready for use as raw materials for new recycled products.
