A survey of UK recycling industry experts has revealed that 59% of respondents considered poor material quality to represent the biggest threat to the sector.
At the Recycling Association’s Quality First Recycling Conference April 5th, more than 100 delegates, from all areas of the recycling supply chain, were asked what posed the biggest threat to the UK’s recycling industry, and 34% of respondents said that legislative ambiguity represented the biggest threat to maintaining current recycling activities. By contrast, just 2% were worried about global competition and even fewer considered illegal trading
to be a threat.
