Below are a few short films/clips that help explain what happens to the and recycling we collect within the district. they also highlight a couple of the major issues we have such as the wrong itens being put into the recycling bins and dangerous driving around collection crews. More will be added over time.
How you’re recycling is sorted
This film shows how your recycling is sorted after we have collected it from your home. It highlights how much effort is put into sorting the recyclables so they can be sent to be used again to make new products and packaging.
Quality is a national issue
The is a film illustrates that the issue of the wrong items been put into a recycling bin is a national issue and not specific to Cannock itself
Driving recklessly on pavements
This video footage is from the onboard cameras that our contractor has fitted to their collection vehicles. It shows examples of reckless driving and makes for shocking viewing. It shows numerous incidents of careless drivers mounting pavements and driving into or just missing waste workers. All because they don’t have the patience to wait until it is safe to pass.
