Plastic recycling industry's problems costing councils up to £500,000 a year

The mountain, which is so big that it can be seen from a satellite, has led to complaints from locals in North Killingholme that it is attracting vermin and lowering house prices.
Basingstoke and Deane Borough Council has told residents to recycle only plastic bottles, shampoo and bleach bottles, leaving all other plastic in regular waste bins.
Before the ban, Japan exported about 1.5 million tonnes of plastic waste per year, most of it to China.
The council intends to tell residents to stop separating plastics for recycling, and throw them in with general waste bin rubbish.
The Southern Daily Echo reported that the company behind the banks is having difficulty disposing of the plastic. Many other councils are expected to follow suit.
Councils are being hit hard by the rising cost of recycling, with some saying they paid around £500,000 more over the past year.
The warning by the Local Government Association comes as the Telegraph reveals mountains of plastic waste is sitting on an abandoned airfield because the local council can not afford to send it to be recycled.
"Our ambition is to handle more of our waste in the UK".
The Advertiser understands that other national media outlets, newspapers and broadcast media, were inundating communications staff at Euclid Street picking up on the Telegraph story.
Japan said Thursday (Oct 18) it was facing a growing sea of plastic waste with limited capacity to process it after China stopped accepting foreign waste imports. To plug the gap, Indonesia and Vietnam increased imports, but many southeast Asian nations are considering a blanket ban on plastic garbage similar to that imposed by Beijing.
"It's clear that the ban by China on imported waste, which could soon be implemented by other countries, could have a marked impact on councils' ability to recycle", said Martin Tett, environment spokesman for the LGA.
'It's essential that the Government provides support to help councils offset the loss of income they face as a result of the ban and encourage manufacturers to use more recyclable materials. "Councils want manufacturers to play their part to reduce the amount of material entering the environment which can't be recycled".
The council's cabinet member for regulatory services and the environment Hayley Eachus said: "There has been a drop in the market for recycling mixed plastics making it unviable for the company providing mixed plastic bring banks in the borough to sell on the material for recycling".
