Portsmouth Materials Recovery Facility

Materials Recovery Facilities (MRFs) separate dry mixed recyclables:

  • newspapers
  • magazines
  • plastic bottles
  • tins
  • cans

The materials are separated by type and baled up. They are sent to private companies for recycling.

Hampshire has two MRFs, in Portsmouth and Alton. The Alton MRF is one of the most advanced in Europe. The two facilities can handle up to 157,000 tonnes of recyclables every year.
