MRW in the Media

Materials Recycling World’s mentions in other media outlets



  • The Daily Express cited MRW’s ‘Scottish Government to consider landfill mining’ within their ‘Landfill mining could be future of recycling’. Daily Express, 6 March.
  • Acting editor Robin Latchem appeared on BBC Radio Oxford’s Breakfast Show to discuss an increase locally in door-to-door licences for clothing collectors.



  • Richard Ottaway MP: “I have to confess, having listened to my hon. Friends the Members for Christchurch (Mr Chope) and for Shipley (Philip Davies) for the past hour or two, that I have quite a lot of affection for both of them. The contribution that they make to scrutinising private Members’ Bills should not be ignored. To that extent, they do the House a service. I call them friends in the political sense, and in the opposition years we worked closely together on the 1922 Committee. I do not therefore dismiss their arguments lightly. But given that my hon. Friend the Member for Shipley, in an interview with Materials Recycling World, said that he would not talk out the Bill, I do not want to do his job for him. I shall simply say that I support the new clause moved by the Minister, but I am not persuaded by the force of the arguments for the amendments tabled by my hon. Friends.” Hansard report, House of Commons, 9 November 2012
