Lets get the UK recycling – Support our Campaign
There is a growing body of evidence that shows how woefully behind the rest of Europe the UK is when it comes to limiting and recycling its waste.
When Suma recently specified a revolutionary recycled and recyclable PET film for its packaging, contact with various waste handling operations revealed they were unwilling to accept the film for recycling mainly on the grounds of its being expensive to handle. This prompted us to advise our customers to push waste PET packaging into their waste PET bottles and then recycle them. However, it also alerted us to the shockingly inadequate recycling infrastructure we have in this country at the moment. That, in turn, prompted us to kick-start a campaign to see if we can improve the situation. Why curse the dark when you can light a candle, after all?
