Waste statistics – recycle plastic and food waste

Three volunteers from Coventry Friends of the Earth surveyed 100 people to ask for their thoughts on recycling and packaging.

I was told the feedback results from all 100 people showed 90% want to be able to recycle more types of plastic and 84% want kerbside collections of food waste.

Danny, of Coventry Friends of the Earth, said: “If the government helped councils to improve services and worked with businesses to make products longer lasting and easier to recycle, we could send much less rubbish to the incinerator. Recycling waste is not only more environmentally friendly, it’s also more cost-effective”.
