At Waste Collection in London, recycling and best practice regarding waste management is always at the forefront of our minds. We invest heavily in ensuring that the recycling services we offer remain wide and varied to encompass our customers' requirements.
Recycling waste materials is key to providing a sustainable future. Currently in the UK we’re using resources faster than they can be made. In 2018 Earth Overshoot Day fell on August 1st, this marked the day that mankind has used more resources than our planet can renew in one year. Meaning we’re currently using the equivalent of 1.7 Earths every year, almost every year Earth Overshoot Day is earlier that the previous year – this is a worrying trend that needs to stop.
This is where the importance of recycling comes into play. It will not cure the problems we face with regard to achieving the planetary goal of a sustainable future, but it will go a long way to help. Certain materials, such as aluminium which is used to make soft drink and food cans, can be recycled indefinitely and the energy used to recycle a can is only 5% of that required to create one from new.
All recycling offers benefits over manufacturing from raw materials or through the treatment of recyclable material, as an example when food is recycled it returns to life as renewable gases for use as energy and compost that can be used in the agriculture sector.
Recycling is the only way forward and coupled with environmentally friendly procurement policies will go a long way to securing the future we all deserve.
