Within Gibraltar, glass, cans, paper, plastic, oil, batteries and small waste electrical and electronic items (WEEE) are picked up from strategically placed recycling bins. All these recyclate streams are then collected separately and sent to certified recycling plants in neighbouring countries. At each recycling plant, the recyclate delivered is reprocessed into new materials bound for manufacturing.
