Recycling rates reached record highs in 2013 and show no signs of slowing down into 2014, according to recycling bin manufacturer Leafield Environmental.
Topping the Leafield leader board in 2013, with sales up by 125%, is the Envirobin collection of versatile recycling bins, installed into private businesses, councils, schools and universities - typically driving up recycling rates by anything from 20 to 50% in just a few months, while saving money for the organisation.
Leafield MD, Phil Maddox, said: "There has been a huge shift in focus on tactics to avoid waste to landfill which includes simpler waste segregation methods that lead to greater reuse of recovered 'clean' waste material. If businesses take these simple steps they will begin to save money and generate income to boost their bottom line. Sometimes it is as simple as placing two recycling bins next to one general waste (landfill) bin to embed the idea that there should be twice as much waste recycled than before."
