Kirklees Recycling Practice - How much is actually recycled?

We're waiting for J Tidmarsh to read recent responses and update the status.

Dear Kirklees Borough Council,

I would like to know how much of our green bin waste is recycled in Kirklees and how much is passed on to a third party for recycling. Also where does our recycling end up once it's passed on to the third party and does it actually get recycled or just dumped in a foreign country?

Yours faithfully,

J Tidmarsh
