Global Recycling Day

We are now in our third year of Global Recycling Day & this year’s feels more important than ever before.

In the UK, the recycling rate is increasing, however so is our population. From 2010 to 2017, the UK increased their recycling rates by over 5%, a step in the right direction to achieve the target of 50% household waste recycling.

The KJB team is always taking the environment into consideration, wherever possible. Over the last 12 months, KJB has supplied over 30,000mt of steel scrap to foundries in UK & Europe.

It’s estimated by 2050, that they’ll be more plastic in the sea than fish! However, there is a positive over the last year, over 60% of the UK households are now recycling more.

You can reduce your waste too, there is a couple of tips below;

  • Carry small reusable shopping bags or plastic containers
  • Keep your recycling bin next to the main bin so you can take both out at the same time

We must act now to protect the environment!
