Commenting on the publication of the Waste and Resources Strategy today, Paul Taylor, chief executive at FCC Environment, said:18 Dec 2018 13:40
“This Strategy marks an important step forward in how we view our waste. With last week’s news that recycling rates have fallen, there’s clearly an urgent need to relook at our approach, and we welcome the ambitious plans Defra has laid out to make the UK a more resource efficient nation. It seems that they have listened to our views.
“In particular, we are encouraged to see a commitment Energy from Waste technology as a way to divert waste from landfill, and an increased focus on reuse, which has been a much-overlooked part of waste policy for many years.
“It is imperative that we leave our planet in a better state than we found it and we hope that this Strategy goes some way to starting to that. We look forward to working with Government to deliver on the commitments it has outlined.”Back
