LONDON – A new UK recycling initiative funded by the Department for Environment, Food and Rural Affairs (DEFRA) and co-ordinated by the Sustainable Clothing Action Plan’s Waste and Resources Action Programme (WRAP) has set out to improve recycling infrastructure across the country by inviting innovators in the field to submit project proposals, the best of which will be eligible to funding.

The new recycling grant, brought about by the £18 million Resource Action Fund launched in May, will vie to accelerate the volumes at which industry sectors, including: retail, health, hospitality, education, transport and wholesale, recycle non-household municipal waste (NHM) such as packaging, paper and food.

The target is to, via the adoption of new recycling services, align with the Resources and Waste Strategy for England’s European Circular Economy Package; which aims to achieve recycling rates of 55 per cent by 2025, 60 per cent by 2030 and 65 per cent by 2035. At present, 40 per cent of NHM is recycled in the UK.
