UK households produced 30.5 million tonnes of waste in 2003/04, of which 17% was collected for recycling (source: defra.gov.uk). This figure is still quite low compared to some of our neighbouring EU countries, some recycling over 50% of their waste. There is still a great deal of waste which could be recycled that ends up in landfill sites which is harmful to the environment.
Back in the day the word 'recycling' was relatively unknown. In today's environment recycling is almost the backbone of any waste management or rubbish disposal regime. Almost any type of waste can be recycled including common things like glass and cardboard.
Just like computers move on and things get more advanced, so has recycling. At ANY Waste less than 20% of rubbish collected from public, commercial and contractual recycling projects actually goes to the landfill. That is right... over 80% of waste actually gets recycled. In fact, if you have purchased anything within the last 5 years that was manufactured in London then there is a chance that we recycled the rubbish that has made the product.
Recycling has become more important than ever! With the ever-changing climates it has highlighted to the world the importance that recycling has on our planet. Change starts at home, so make sure you are recycling in the correct way. Try to separate glass, cardboard, garden waste and oils so that recycling plants can recycle in the best way possible
