Research shows UK recycling rates rose the quickest in Europe.

Although many still choose to dispose waste at landfill, the cost for recycling materials is still far lower than this option – not to mention more environmentally friendly.

Recycling statistics in the UK increased faster in the first ten years of the millennium compared to any other European country – with Orion Waste the first to congratulate the UK on its efforts.

According to a Guardian article published in March, despite the UK managing only 12 per cent in 2001 for all municipal waste, in 2010 this figure reached an impressive 39 per cent; making it on par with the average for the European Union.

John Stride of Orion Waste commented: “What we’ve seen here is the UK’s determination and commitment to make a difference in the way we treat waste. Gone are the days of disposing our waste items in one universal bin; more of us are appreciating the global impact we’re making on the environment by taking the time to recycle – with these figures reflecting how environmentally-conscious our nation is.”

The last few years have seen a dramatic shift in the way waste management companies treat rubbish, and Orion Waste is no exception. Renowned for its resource recovery throughout the southeast of England, with the country’s capital favouring Orion Waste’s rubbish collection London solution as one of its most popular services.

“We’re extremely pleased that our hard work in undertaking and promoting our recycling services has paid off,” said Stride. ”However, much more needs to be done – and hopefully we can inspire the rest of Europe to follow suit. Although many still choose to dispose waste at landfill, the cost for recycling materials is still far lower than this option – not to mention more environmentally friendly.”
