Consumers

Whether it’s baby food, juices, pet food or toothpaste, we use plastic aluminium packaging every day. Most people are concerned about the environmental impact of packaging. But until the Enval process is widely adopted, there is no choice but to put these items in the bin and send them to landfill.

There is plenty that you can do to help ensure that a solution for these materials is put in place.

Your local authority makes decisions about how your waste is handled and can put pressure on the companies who handle your waste to adopt new technologies. Why not write to your local authority to ask them what they are doing to put recycling solutions in place?
