LONDON, 08 May 2015: The Environmental Services Association (ESA), the voice for the UK’s resource and waste management industry, today commented on the election of the new Conservative Government.
ESA’s Executive Director Jacob Hayler said:
“With the Conservative Party forming the next Government, we look forward to working with them to ensure that waste and recycling issues are well represented on the agenda for the next Parliament.
The recycling industry has gone through a challenging time in the past 12 months but is well placed to provide jobs at all skills levels all around the country as we recycle more of our waste.
A key environmental priority for the next Government should be to find a way for us to meet our 2020 household recycling targets without local authorities going bust. The industry is keen to help the Government solve this conundrum as well as other issues affecting our sector.”
