Plastic prices tumble amid Chinese delays


Very worrying that the UK collection and baling sector have built up a dependancy on high volume export of low quality baled plastics. With circa 70% of collected plastic packaging going for export the UK is left looking very weak in terms of in-house recycling capacity as a result of this export policy. Maybe a good time for the new Green Investment bank to step up to the plate and support some new investment in sustainable recycling plants at high volume.
