Plastic Surgery: managing waste plastics in the UK  

Plastics are now at the centre of the sustainable waste management debate due to the growth and prevalence of plastic packaging resulting from growth in global trade, on-line retail and ‘on-the-go’ consumption of  

food and drink. This paper sets out the waste management issues relating to plastics we commonly deal with, as a society and within Biffa, together with our thoughts on how we think plastics waste management should be addressed through emerging policy and regulation, what could be done now and what should be avoided.
