What happens to waste from the Green Lid Bin

Organic items are converted into compost through the Portsmith Advanced Resource Recovery Facility (ARRF) and used for local agricultural purposes. Non-organic items are removed and transported for disposal at landfill.

Hazardous waste items are disposed of by licensed contractors at appropriate sites for the treatment and reuse/disposal/destruction of the waste.
