ISSUE 157 February 2019


by Richard Hollis, Editor


WITH the new year in full swing and everyone planning out the year ahead, we at Skip Hire & Waste Magazine have been inundated with enquiries about a potential Waste 19.


We can now announce that the Waste expo is on hiatus for 2019. Instead, we will be organising an exciting networking event for the industry to follow later in the year. Turn to page 5 for more details, and rest assured we will be keeping you fully updated in the coming months.


Meanwhile this is, of course, our plastics issue. While the environmental news these days seems to be both terrifying and bleak, we can take comfort in the small improvements we see around us from day to day.


Plastic straws are steadily being phased out in favour of biodegradable ones, people are taking their Bags for Life to the supermarkets, and companies are pledging to address and minimise their plastic waste.


Of course, not many people actually see what happens to their plastic recycling once the bin has been collected. Turn to page 18 to learn more about how plastic waste goes from trash to treasure.


We are also, inevitably, inching ever closer to that March deadline that I shall refer to only as ‘the B event’, since the very mention of the word can apparently cause a fi ght in an empty room. Needless to say, the eff ects of ‘the B event’ will be felt far and wide, and the plastics industry is no exception.


Last year the European parliament voted in favour of a ban on single-use plastics and calls have been made for the UK Government to commit to similar legislation, so we can play our part in tackling this international issue.


Just like so many UK industries, all we can do is wait and see what March brings.
