End Destination Charter

Recyclable material – a resource, not a waste

The waste and recycling we collect from households in South Gloucestershire is a resource with a value and a global market. There is demand for certain materials from manufacturers who turn them into new products which means that the quality of the recycling we collect is very important.

To make sure that we meet waste regulations and quality standards, the council and SUEZ carry out regular checks of any companies that process our waste and recycling under the contract. In addition, the Environment Agency monitors any material that leaves the UK.

End Destination Charter

We have signed up to the End Destinations Charter which is a national initiative to improve awareness and transparency of where waste and recycling from households ends up and what happens to it.

Our charter is updated every year once we have received all of the information from our contractor SUEZ.

Find out what happens to your waste.
