The National Bed Federation (NBF), a trade body representing British and Irish bed manufacturers and suppliers, has brought together industry representatives to form a committee on eliminating the use of landfill with hopes of building a circular economy for the UK’s mattress and bed sector.
Jaguar Land Rover Automotive plc. have found a way to implement a circular supply chain for aluminium for car bodies, by recycling the metal from end-of-life vehicles to be used in the manufacture of new cars.
Residents in Bristol and South Staffordshire are the latest to receive targeted messaging about recycling metal products as part of the MetalMatters programme, with help from compliance scheme Ecosurety.
China’s Ministry of Environmental Protection has released a list of materials that will be banned from import from the start of 2018. Steel, copper, nickel, aluminium, zinc and tin were notable absences, according to Reuters.
The UK’s first battery recycling facility is set to open this autumn after Ecosurety and Belmont Trading today announced a partnership that aims to make the UK self-sufficient in battery recycling as it prepares to leave the EU.
