The ten thousand people to have visited the recycling centre – the largest of its kind in the UK– have gained a hands-on experience of the ‘closed-loop system’ which sees paper shredded and baled before being sent to a local mill to be recycled and converted into toilet paper which was sold in selected Co-operative Food stores.
