Episode 4: Where does your recycled plastic go?
22 September 2021
Where does your plastic go? What does it turn into? And how much of what we put in the recycling bin actually gets recycled?
In this episode we bring together guests from all stages of the recycling process, from designing the plastics to managing our local recycling infrastructure, to look at the journey of a recycled plastic.
Professor Mike Shaver, Director of the Sustainable Materials Innovation Hub at the Henry Royce Institute, Shirley Rodrigues, Deputy Mayor of London for Environment and Energy and Council member Jess David, Member Advocate for Biodiversity walk us through the opportunities and pitfalls.
