Over the last 15 years recycling has become a more common means of managing waste in the UK.

However, over the last couple of years, recycling rates have started to stagnate and with the general economic outlook now better than since the financial crisis, the UK faces a tough challenge to maintain and improve its long-term recycling prospects. This recent trend has generated a need for organised recycling schemes, a larger number of recycling facilities and government programmes that further motivate or incentivise people to recycle. By providing further information on what materials can be recycled and by using innovative recycling methods, recycling will continue to play a key role in waste management.
