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.

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.
