Would it be great if we lived in a society where we didn’t have to worry about the waste that we produce and we could concentrate on more important things in life? However, waste management in the UK is a real and serious issue that needs to be addressed.
National government has many guidelines in place to ensure that all waste is removed from households and businesses on a regular basis so that it can be disposed of in the correct manner. However, we are no where near meeting the targets set for making Britain zero waste. In order to become a zero waste national, everybody including manufacturers, food companies and supermarkets need to think about how food and other items are packaged and increase the amount of packaging that can be recycled.
Recycling should be on the top of agenda when it comes to dealing with your household waste. Every local authority in the UK provides some kind of recycling facilities for its residents and you may need to ring your local council to find out what is going on in your area if you don’t know already. The council may even provide you with a specific bin for your recycling.
