Where there’s muck there’s brass

4th April 2011

I find the waste management industry fascinating.

This has always been something of a ‘dirty' secret (and something that has elicited concerned looks from benevolent colleagues!), but it is undeniably true.

We produce enormous volumes of the stuff. In 2010 the UK produced 278.3 million tonnes of waste.

Volumes have actually declined significantly in recent years, down 14% since 2006 which represents one of the major environmental achievements of the past few decades.
