How to have your say


Slow-down in

recycling rates These statistics are worrying for the future of the environment, and we need to figure out why people aren’t recycling as much. As you may know, every 4 weeks your bin men will collect all your trash and recycling. But even though it looks like there is a lot being recycled, our industry suspects its not 100%. There is a real problem with fly-tipping in the UK, which includes throwing away your rubbish incorrectly. It is estimated that 1.3bs of household waste is fly-tipped every year; In 2017 statistics released by the government stated that each local authority in England had reported 15.8 incidents of fly tipping per 10,000 residents. This could lead people to hoarding their rubbish and not bothering to recycle. The UKs recycling rate has slowed in recent years. Recycling rates are heading the wrong way in the USA too. The USAs recycling rates have been declining for decades. Recent research into recycling rates claimed that only 51% of plastic was being recycled. It seems as though we are failing to take responsibility for our waste, and are not doing enough to battle climate change.

Solving the plastics

problem Plastic is a material consisting of any of a wide range of synthetic or semi-synthetic organic compounds that are malleable and so can be molded into solid objects.

Plastic comes in many forms including: opaque plastic, polyethylene terephthalate (PET), polypropylene (PP), polystyrene (PS), high-density polyethylene (HDPE), low-density polyethylene (LDPE) and more.

What materials can

be recycled? Many councils provide a recycling service, either free or for a small household charge, through which domestic properties are able to recycle these materials. At present each type of item is recycled into different materials – i.e. PET (PETE) is recycled into new plastic bottles, aluminium cans are recycled into new cans, glass is melted down and reused to make new glass jars and windows etc. However in the future some recycled materials will be made from all of the main categories of recyclable items at once, which should ultimately mean much less material is required to produce new products with a smaller carbon footprint.Environmental campaigns are making an effort to address this lack of uniformity, with local government websites publishing information on recyclable items collected in their area. However, it is rare for information to be published regarding the frequency and limits imposed by these authorities on specific collections.Recycling in the United Kingdom. Collecting waste for recycling in public bins is a service provided by local authorities in the United Kingdom. On average people use about 250-300 standard black plastic bags per year for general household waste disposal and about half of these are recycled (by weight).There are several different ways in which your waste could be recycled, and the way your waste is collected will determine what you are able to recycle.
