The value of the UK recycling market rose again over 2017, though margins narrowed in line with increasingly difficult market conditions. These conditions are set to be exacerbated in the coming years given the recent Chinese ban on imported plastic waste, government budget constraints, and the finalisation of Brexit negotiations. Despite this, the market is expected to continue to grow in the coming years, though margins will remain pressured.
