Routes to reuse: maximising value from reused materials

Voters and tax payers have a strong interest in increasing the amount of material from households that is reused and therefore not sent to landfill or for incineration. In addition to the significant environmental benefits and social value reuse can create, there is a strong economic and business case for it too. We estimate there could be over £400 million of untapped value available each year to taxpayers, charities, businesses and consumers by increasing the amount we reuse.
