Video: Contamination – The Enemy of Recycling

16 December 2014

The UK Resource Association has released a video highlighting the challenge of contaminated recyclate for UK reprocessors and promoting a high quality approach to recycling collection.
Ray Georgeson, Chief Executive of the Resource Association said: “Contamination of recyclate remains a major issue for the British reprocessing industries. As I mentioned in the film, it costs UK industry at least 50 million pounds a year to clean up poor quality material that arrives at our factory gates. The video illustrates in some detail the issues the UK manufacturing industry faces from the material that comes from many British households” (News Release Resource Association, 27 November 2014).
