The UK construction industry uses around 5 million sheets of plywood per year for temporary works and at the end of contracts the board is disposed of, usually to landfill.
Over 2.5 million tonnes of waste plastic packaging was dumped in landfill in 2008.
This is a valuable resource that could be recovered for reuse, reducing our carbon footprint and our dependency upon oil.
However, recycling of this material is not generally considered cost effective, using existing techniques, as the waste packaging contains different types and colours of plastics.
