The current system of waste collection in the UK is inefficient. Garbage tends to pile up in landfills and leakage of methane gases occurs at landfills. These are a result of poor waste management and creation of huge amounts of garbage, which then ends up polluting our air, water and soil.
“We take out garbage” is probably not what you are expecting from your company. We need to think about that, as a segment of the population which is often forgotten in any discussion of the environment.
This section should be a bit more about recycling and waste management but don’t go as far as to write about our plastic habits. Write about the challenges we face when it comes to waste management.
In the UK, we have garbage trucks that collect garbage from both residential and business areas. There are different types of collection vehicles: no-load vehicles and full load trucks. No-load vehicles will not start up or beep when they reach their destination but full load trucks must start up and sound an alarm when they get near the end of their route. When we hear sounds from our garbage collection vehicle, we know that it is either no-load or full load because it’s carrying “full load” (or “medium load”) of garbage bags instead of small amounts, like bag.
In the United Kingdom, 75% of the households have to have their domestic rubbish removed by the council at least once a year. The number of waste disposal companies is increasing faster than the population.
Who wants to know about the garbage? How much is it worth? What are the different types of garbage and what does it mean for recycling?

While the UK is a country that has never been known for its green spirit, there is something that makes it so easy to find a UK resident who collects soft plastic and littered debris. Littering.
A recent study revealed how many people in the country are doing just that: collecting waste in their homes or car parks. And they don’t even know it! They might not have any idea that they are actually producing a lot of litter every time they take out their garbage bin.
The study also revealed six percent of people who throw away food items do not empty their bags and pans in the garbage bins as well, but rather place them on the road side or store them far away from where they were thrown away so nobody can see them.
In this section, the authors describe what garbage is in the UK and how it is collected and how it is disposed of. They then discuss the history of rubbish collection in the UK and how some organizations are trying to dismantle industry-wide waste management systems. They also discuss further disposal options and disposal places.
The UK has one of the highest rates of waste on landfills worldwide. It is estimated that it will reach 290 million tonnes in 2050, and increase by 10 percent every year until 2050.
The government has responded to the challenge by introducing a new strategy – ‘Zero Waste to landfill’ – with the aim to reduce waste further and make cities more sustainable.
One of the major efforts is to move from using single-use plastics like straws, bottles, coffee cups and plastic bags – which all end up being thrown away as waste into recycling facilities, back into useful products again.
