ESA looks for further UK progress in the European recycling league
This report by the Environmental Services Association (ESA), (the voice of the UK's waste management industry), has commented on reports that the UK has risen up the European recycling league table. ESA's Communications Officer, Rid Hollands, said:

"As the latest Eurostat provisional statistics show, recycling levels in the UK have risen dramatically in the last ten years or so, and our members are at the forefront of ensuring these rates continue to rise. However, there is still a lot more we can do as a country. As we've previously stated, there is still 11.4 million tonnes of waste being sent to landfill and the UK is still some way from reaching its EU Directive target of recycling 50% of household waste by 2020.

The report points out that in order for the UK to move further up the rankings both national and local government need to provide a stable & sensible regulatory and planning regime.  The report identifies that there is a need for between £10 - £20bn to upgrade Britain’s waste infrastructure
