Originally published by Recycling Waste World on 12 April 2018 People are the lifeblood of any sector but, with the circular economy and low carbon goals of our industry, we need the best and the brightest to drive aspirations for future development.
Viridor is a founder signatory to the UK Plastics Pact, an initiative supported by the UK Government which aims to bring consumer brands, packaging, retail and recycling companies together to tackle plastic pollution and to maximise recycling and reprocessing opportunities.
Viridor and the BBC’s The One Show combined their resources to send a powerful message on the need to act now to stem the tide of beach and ocean plastics and to demonstrate how the Circular Economy can work when the right stuff is put in the right bin.
Viridor has completed a £1 million upgrade of its Scottish glass recycling plant and has secured a Scottish Procurement contract covering five Scottish local authorities and a total estimated annual tonnage of 10,500.
Viridor, the UK’s biggest recycling company, looks forward to working with the Government on a deposit-return scheme which ensures waste is valued as a resource, rather than rubbish, kept off our beaches and out of oceans and put back in the British economy where it belongs.
