Recover

What does 'recover' mean?

After we have reduced, reused and recycled (including composting) as much as possible, some of the rubbish left can be used to generate heat and power. This is known as recovery. By recovering the left over energy in the rubbish, we are helping to reduce the amount of waste we send to landfill.

In Gloucestershire, we are looking at alternatives to landfill and the sections below contain information on our progress.
