5 Billion Plastic Bottles – Wait and Load rubbish removal
Around 5 billion plastic bottles were sent to landfill sites last year, many of which were collected by wait and load rubbish removal in London. These statistics come from a survey carried out by Pledge4Plastics. This fact is undoubtedly worrying with Britain only recycled 43.9 percent of waste, which is a fall compared to last years 44.1 percent. Currently the UK are behind Germany who are the global leader at 65 percent.
According to Pledge4Plastics, each UK home on average uses 440 plastic bottles a year, with statistics showing only 250 bottles are being recycled. One in five people admit to disposing of plastic in the correct bins.
Regardless off the countless Whitehall Campaigns, Britons are not doing enough. Nearly 33 percent of people thought they recycled as much as they can but one in ten children admin to not even care.
Wait and load rubbish removal services try to lead by example, recycling up to 90 percent of plastics and other general building waste.
