    Delphis Eco publishes survey findings linked to Recycle Week

    As Recycle Week celebrates its 20th anniversary, leading eco-cleaning company, Delphis Eco has published some key findings from its latest survey which captures some of the focus of this year’s theme, “missed capture”, the items that can be recycled but are commonly missed in the home.

    One of these key missed items for recycling are cosmetics and where nearly 40 per cent of people said they don’t think to recycle bottles or may occasionally do.

    Food waste is another “missed capture”. It’s estimated that 70 per cent of wasted food in the UK is caused by families in their own homes. This is 4.5 million tonnes of food being thrown away every year that could have been eaten.

    The Delphis survey found that nearly half the population don’t have a home compost

    Another key aspect of this year’s Recycle Week theme is a focus on local authorities to share the central message – to galvanise the public into recycling more of the right things, more often.

    However, with different systems in play across regional authorities, 73 per cent of responders said they strongly agree that all local authorities should be consistent in their recycling approach to make recycling more efficient, less confusing as a national standard.

    When asked how confident people are that their local authority is correctly sorting their household recycling rather than sending it to landfill, nearly half of those asked were not confident that recycled waste was being processed effectively.

    “WRAP’s Recycle Week is always a great opportunity to focus on how we can reduce, reuse and recycle more,” said Delphis Eco, Founder and Managing Director, Mark Jankovich.
