Quiz tests nation’s recycling knowledge

TO mark Recycle Week (September 21-27), Goplasticpallets.com has created a quiz to test the nation’s recycling knowledge.

Since launching its plastic pallet recycling scheme 18 months ago, promising to recover and recycle all of the plastic pallets and boxes it supplies to customers, Goplasticpallets.com revealed it has recycled more than 400 tonnes of plastic waste.

MD Jim Hardisty said, “When we launched our recycling scheme, we set out with the mission of helping create more sustainable supply chains by ensuring all of the plastic pallets and boxes we supply are responsibly recycled at the end of their use.

“During lockdown we expected things to ease, but we actually recycled 45 tonnes of plastic in just four months from customers used plastic pallets and boxes. But, with your help we can continue to recycle more!”

The theme of WRAP’s annual Recycle Week is ‘Thanking the nation: Together – We Recycle’. According to the latest statistics, through lockdown nearly 9 in 10 UK households said they ‘regularly recycle’. Furthermore, an 93% of households said they believe that ‘everyone has a responsibility to help towards cleaning up the environment’/

Peter Maddox, director of WRAP UK said, “It’s fantastic to see that despite everything that has been thrown at them this year, more people than ever are taking responsibility for protecting the environment by choosing to recycle. This is something we can all do, wherever we live – an individual action that, when performed by everyone, adds up to a huge change.”
