UK Recycling

Recycling is a very hot topic in the UK at the moment. An increasingly popular notion for many years, it is currently in the public eye more than ever – and about time, too.

200 million tonnes of waste is produced annually in the UK alone, and each household throws away a shocking 40kg of plastic per year.

However, this figure will shrink dramatically if we all do our best to reduce, reuse, and recycle; the nation is certainly getting better at recycling household waste, judging by the statistics. Take a look at the infographic below and find out all about the UK’s waste, waste types, recycling, and many related fascinating facts and figures.

We hope this infographic inspires you to take action today.
