Mixed Plastic recycling not exported to China from Eastbourne

In response to recent news about the Chinese government reaffirming their ban on imported Mixed Plastics that are not of sufficient quality, the East Sussex Joint waste Partnership Manager has issued the following statement on behalf of Keir: “We can confirm that Kier and its recycling partner Viridor do not export Mixed Plastics collected from Eastbourne, Hastings, Rother and Wealden to China. A fundamental principle of Kier’s business is to seek to use recyclates locally so materials can be returned to the supply chain and create products.”
