Further information

This 2019 report looks at the key developments since 2016, including trends in plastic collections and recycling; risks and opportunities in the main end markets for the UK's recovered plastics; trends in recovered plastic prices; and policy and legislative issues. Better information about markets for recovered plastics could help local authorities’ make decisions about their plastics collection schemes and help them communicate with residents about where their recycling goes. It might also help businesses – those already active in the sector or those looking to enter the sector – and their financiers identify market opportunities and assess risks.
