Criminal UK plastic recycling corruption.

The UK’s plastic recycling industry is currently under investigation for fraud and corruption by after claims plastic waste is not being recycled, but left to Leak and pollute oceans and rivers. Investigators believe there is widespread fraud and corruption in the  export system, amid warnings the world is about to close the door on UK plastic waste.

The environment agency, believe that organised criminals and firms are abusing the system and waste is being shipped illegally to the far east via the Netherlands. Exporters are also claiming for tens of thousands of tons of plastic waste that doesn’t even exist, and the real waste is leaking into rivers and oceans as the plastic epidemic continues to choke our planet.

Exporters are making millions of pounds buy charging retailers £60 per ton for them the dispose of their plastic trash, and keep the government happy that we are recycling correctly. Currently 100 containers of plastic waste is leaving the UK every single day for Europe and the Far East highlighting that we are only at the beginning of this journey to clear the world of plastic waste.
