A new initiative has been launched by ACR+ member NLWA to collect polystyrene at its eight reuse and recycling centres (RRCs) across north London which will then get processed at two main sites equipped with new compactors. Each year across the UK over 10,000 tonnes of polystyrene is thrown away. It is light but bulky, so NLWA is urging north London residents to help reduce this unnecessary waste by bringing their unwanted polystyrene to one of the participating RRCs so that it can be turned into insulation panels, for the housing and construction industries. Other uses include hard plastics like coat hangers, toys, and picture frames.
