Rubbish Clearance Recycle goals for UK Councils up by 65%

rubbish clearance london UK Councils launch new recycle goals up to 65%.

Hull and East Riding councils are launching a campaign that will make    them as the best recycling masters in United Kingdom.

East Riding will be aiming to recycle 65% of their household waste by 2020 and Hull will be aiming 60% by that same year.

With their urban structure it will be a difficult to achieve but their target 6 years ago of 45% have been achieved and a new goal is needed for their council.


East Riding councilor Symon Fraser, environment portfolio holder, said: “Previously, when we set the target of 45 per cent, we couldn’t really imagine how we would achieve that.

“Our residents have been fantastic and now we need another ambitious target to drive that forward.

“The most important thing is that our residents want to do it. They’re up for it.”

Doug Sharp, Hull City Council’s assistant head of service for waste and open spaces, said: “The council currently has one of the best recycling rates of any city in the country, recycling almost half the waste collected in the city.

“The new strategy has set challenging targets for both increasing recycling and diversion of waste from landfill.

“The strategy has also introduced new targets for C02 reduction, which demonstrates the council’s aspiration to enhance Hull’s reputation as a green city.”

Mr Fraser said: “We’re hoping the various providers who are out there will get back to us with proposals, whether they are long-term or short-term proposals.

“The most important thing is there are commercial opportunities locally, nationally and even internationally for material we hitherto considered to be just waste. Companies take it away and there is a pay-off for the taxpayer.”

The East Yorkshire will be using contractors.

Mr. Fraser said: “It is the contractors that carry the risk.

“Everything has a value and, right now, some of those values are high.

“But it can be a volatile market. That’s why we contract out because councils don’t want to carry the risk in a vulnerable market.”

British Households Becoming a “Throw-Away” Society

In the current  fashion trend, we have thrown more than 500,000 tons of clothes in landfill every year compared to only two million tons being bought by shops.

And Britain is no exception as we have been famous as a “throw-away society” with one of every three local councils can find clothes and rubbish together. In the past, old clothes were reused, hand down to family or relatives, or donated to charity organizations.

The British Government wants to limit clothes dumping by requiring its local councils to introduce textile recycling to address the increase in clothes dumping and stop them from reaching the landfills.

Most common waste have been significantly reduce from going to the landfills but textile garbage has increase three times in just a few years since the price of clothes have drop due to  ‘Primark effect’.

To reduce limit the waste that goes to landfills, the British Government enforce taxes for every ton of waste being delivered to dumpsites or suffer with extreme fines.  Concerned about the issue, the local councils have begun adding textile to their segregation that includes plastics, paper, glass and cardboard.

This move requires that every household must have a separate clothing bins need to be segregated from types of waste such as glass and food waste but clothes can also be added with plastic, paper and tin.

The local councils also develop co-mingled collections where recyclable materials are all put in one bag. Some local council is presently testing a technique where clothes are put into ‘survival sack’ together with clean recycled materials such as paper but will make sure that it remains clean and can be segregated after.

Around 60% of our clothes being collected are sent to Africa and Eastern Europe for re-use and another 35% is being used as mattress fillers or insulation while less down 5% that cannot be recycled are thrown to landfills.

But some charity shops are concerned that we will be encouraged to throw our clothes rather than donating it to charitable institutions. Most people now forget how to stitch damage clothes anymore and they find it economical to buy than fixing an old one.

We must therefore think about the labor and environmental effect of throwing clothes and buying new ones and consider re-using these clothes or recycling.

What can one plastic bottle you recycled can do?

During extreme heat or out in the sun, we are always grabbing a bottle of cool and refreshing bottle of water or soda. Although we don’t really care about our famous plastic bottle, did you know what can one plastic bottle you recycle can do? .

We use around 15 million of plastic bottles in the United Kingdom and that’s a lot of waste! We sometimes complain about how much rubbish we have in United Kingdom but we are the cause and the solution. Plastic bottles  are slowly filling our landfill but nearly half of this is being recycled today. Congratulate yourself for the effort, but you can do more to lessen our rubbish.

We have been recycling more than 20 times now since 2000 because of the different technologies available for recycling and hopefully all materials can be recycled 100%. Today we can get products such as fences, bags, flooring, fleeces and even recycled bottles from bottles. Try buying products from recycled materials so that they can produce more recycled products. 

I urge you to recycle a bottle a day or don’t use plastic bottles anymore. If all of us in the UK will do this , then we can save more energy to energize 71,000 plasma screen TV’s. So clean your old water bottle and carry it every day when you go to work or watch a football game.
