Rubbish is a rather big, costly and challenging beast. Of the £3bn spent each year by businesses on environmental protection, one third is spent on waste management. But companies are not alone in feeling the strain. Local governments across Europe face similar challenges as they consider ways to sort through the tons of waste thrown away every year.

Taming the beast will require the involvement of all levels of government, and concerted action led by Europe’s local authorities. It is broadly agreed that the current loss of resources, cost to businesses and households and impact on the environment must be stopped at all costs.
