Important changes to Suffolk's recycling

Make sure you're up to speed with some important changes to the way we recycle in Suffolk.

Over the coming months the Materials Recycling Facility (MRF) in Gt Blakenham, where recycling collected from Suffolk households is sorted, will be undergoing a major refurbishment. This work follows a new contract for the operation of Suffolk’s countywide network of 11 Recycling Centres and will result in a state-of-the-art facility for Suffolk, with the latest mechanical and optical sorting equipment.

 

How does this affect me?

 

  • During the renovation period, your recycling will be collected on your usual collection day
  • Drink cartons (e.g. Tetra Pak) and metal pots, pans and trays will no longer be accepted in recycling bins, but can still be recycled at all 11 of Suffolk’s Recycling Centres
