Trends in recycling rate increase need to be improved say ESA

LONDON, 10 August 2015: The Environmental Services Association (ESA), the voice for the UK’s resource and waste management industry, today commented on the recently released recycling rates for England for 2014.

ESA’s Executive Director, Jacob Hayler said:

“It is positive to see that England’s recycling rate hit a new high of 44.8% in 2014. However, if we are to hit our 2020 recycling targets then the pace of increase will clearly have to improve.

Three quarters of the improvement in annual performance came from higher rates of organics recycling and, as local authority budgets continue to be squeezed going forward, we need to ensure that these trends aren’t reversed.”
