Every year you will always hear in the news about the growing tide of waste disposal and unfortunately this problem continues to get bigger even though some very important processing plant has been built and developed by the larger companies in the industry.
Recent economic growth for peoples habits in disposal of waste is not greatly encouraging either as some individual households recycle only a small fraction of what they could. Is this lack in recycling the fault of the public or the local councils? The answer to this is a mixture as the facilities in different local areas are confusing when it comes down to what can and cannot be recycled.
Often it is mentioned that you can recycle plastics but only certain ones, as this is not clear I am sure many people then just put all plastics through the normal route of disposal - only a joined up remedy across the country will solve and give us a better understanding on how to recycle
Recently I have been recycling for a local university after the clear out of students, this is never a reassuring moment as at least 60% of what they dispose of is recyclable. If you multiply this outcome across the country literally hundreds of tonnes of waste could be recycled each year
Don't let the tide strengthen continue to do your bit if you can and hopefully the government will start to implement stronger strategies to deal with the problem other than just penalising independent waste carriers with more legislation and tax
