Wiles Greenworld recycling series – the plastic bottle

In Britain we use 15 million plastic bottles every day. Most of these bottles can be recycled into really useful things. Plastic is one of the most popular and useful materials of modern times.  However, its popularity is part of the problem: we now use about 20 times more plastic than we did 50 years ago.  However, we can optimise the lifespan of plastics by reusing and recycling items as many times as possible.  92% of all UK local authorities now offer households collection facilities for plastic bottles either from your kerbside collection scheme or at recycling centres.

If you are a business and would like to recycle your plastic Wiles Greenworld London office supplies distributor offers a free recycling service for all seven plastic types. To find out more about plastic recycling or our environmental office supplies contact us today.

Green office tips:  A recent study demonstrated mixed plastics packaging (trays, tubs, pots, films etc) can be mechanically recycled and is both economically and environmentally effective to do so.
