Did anyone watch the BBC program last night at 9pm regarding plastic waste / recycling?

I am keen to know what Southwark / Veola do with my recycled plastic????

Not sure about Southwark but my Dad works in this field. Apparently as a country we don't have the facilities to recycle all the plastic waste we produce - there is not a market for the end product and no money in it. As a result only a small proportion of the UK's plastic waste is actually recycled as we would expect it to. We just need to use less and stop buying it. The supermarkets make it very hard though, we need to put more pressure on them.

Why not ask a direct question to your ward councillor concerned

Empty ships?! Good old Southwark,,

“However, sometimes, we export materials on what otherwise would be empty ships to make new products in another country. This could happen when there is not much demand at the time in the UK for those materials.”

In other words they flog some, no questions asked to Malaysia, Philippines etc now China won’t take it

Veolia have been quite response when I've asked questions in the past on twitter [twitter.com], if you want to try them there, or on other channels [www.veolia.co.uk]. They also have an open day in September [www.veolia.co.uk].
