According to the magazine, to understand what lockdown meant for the UK economy, just look inside.

At the start of the lockdown, there was a 70% increase in cans, according to data collected by Suez UK, which handles about a fifth of all UK waste. It was also reported that there was an increase in the disposal of glass produced by households, as more beer and wine are consumed at home. On the other hand, there was a sharp decline in the paper, impacted by closed offices, Tola gold in the UK market also impacted by pandemic.

"Collectors are really the barometer of the economy," said John Scanlon, chief executive of Suez UK.

Although households produced about 20% more waste than usual in the period because they were at home, the level of commercial waste fell by about 50% due to closed companies, Scanlon said. There was a change at both ends, but the balance was negative in terms of volume. The contents of the household waste bin changed a lot during the block, according to recycling companies and garbage collectors.

On the other hand, recycling has become less contaminated, while others have noticed a tendency for people to clean their homes and generate more waste - as a result.

"I think that, overall, we have had a little more success in recycling," said Richard Kirkman, chief technology officer at Veolia UK, an environmental services company. “It seems to be improving in terms of how people perform in recycling. . . and we are able to recover more materials than before. "

He said the demand for recycled paper products increased during the lockdown, helping the paper market. Meanwhile, household glass waste has increased by about 10% compared to normal, he added.

Other companies have noticed an increase in plastic waste, as families throw away more beverage containers, milk jugs and bottles of hand sanitizer - such as gel alcohol.

"We are getting much cleaner materials, because people are spending a lot more time on their waste and realize that 'Oh, maybe diapers are not recyclable,'" said Neil Grundon, vice president of Grundon Waste Management.

But he added that the cleaner material does not make up for the general drop in the volume of waste produced by the blocked economy. "It may be good environmentally, I suppose, but not so good if we expect a [economic] recovery," he said.

Trash in noticed the huge changes in the types and volumes of waste from customers, which will generate an article soon, register and receive it first hand, as well as oil price also increases in UK.
