Waste is a huge and growing problem. Each day, more than 3.6 million tonnes of municipal solid waste is produced worldwide. By 2025, that’s projected to rise to 6.1 million metric tonnes per day. The UK generates around 220 million tonnes of waste each year, with England responsible for 85% of the UK total. This will adversely affect health and contaminate our air, landscape, fresh water and oceans. Whilst recycling has been found to be a significant solution to alleviate deleterious impacts of increasing amount of waste. Hence, people’s behaviour plays a prominent part in waste minimisation elements such as waste generation, source separation, storage, collection, recycling and disposal.
