Does anyone know how much waste is produced in the UK every year, I have looked on other websites and they all seem a bit out of date now that more and more people are recycling.
Thanks in advance.

Well these are the latest facts and figures I have been able to find:
In total, for the period 2003/04 – 2007/08, the quantity of cans, glass, paper, plastic and textiles recycled was equivalent to the following:
The recycling industry has an annual turnover of approximately £17 billion and contributes around £5.5 billion to the UK economy, while directly and indirectly supporting around 100,000 jobs.
Hope this helped.
