Banknotes undergo a quality check at the logistics centre of the National Bank of Hungary in Budapest.

Once they are taken out of circulation, the bank notes are recycled for fuel, and a few charities each year get 20-30 tonnes of paper bricks each.
Four tons of shredded and compressed banknotes are loaded onto a truck at the logistics center of the National Bank of Hungary.

Hungary is the only country to recycle its worn cash for fuel each year, a total of some $1 billion worth of forints.

The bricks are then sent to a few charities, covering up to a third of their annual heating fuel supplies.
