The Environment Agency is considering the development of a national waste exchange. Criticism of nature of recycling industry Recycling companies tend to be small to medium sized enterprises (or SMEs in ‘jargon’). The Market Development Group argues that this size of company is less likely to take a long term view than larger companies. They are also more vulnerable to market instability, and it can be difficult to ‘spread the message’ of such issues as good practice, new technologies or quality standards.

House Clearance Huddersfield suggests a number of ways that these problems can be addressed, including:

• A way of providing price guarantees
• The development of longer-term contracts rather than spot prices ‘to promote risk-sharing’.
• A possible futures market in recyclables
• Eco-design should be more heavily promoted
• More emphasis on specifications • Good practice guidance for the reprocessing of waste materials should be developed.
• More emphasis on environmental considerations in public purchasing, both in local and central government, as well as for large businesses.

Economic instruments to boost recyclate markets According to the Market Development Group, ‘economic instruments’ could increase demand for recycled materials. So what exactly do they mean by ‘economic instruments? These are supposed to figure the environmental cost of a material into the prices paid in the market place – the Landfill Tax and the PRN system for packaging waste are some of the most obvious examples. Essentially, the Group have come up with four ways that these could be introduced: Charge / subsidy scheme Companies throughout industry could be charged for the amount of material they use. They could then claim a rebate for any recycled material used to offset the tax. Companies using a lot of recyclate could even make a net gain.

Designed to be revenue neutral, this scheme would act as an incentive to increase the use of secondary materials. Raw materials tax This would only tax raw materials, with the aim of making recyclate more cost-effective. It would apply to imports, but not exports to maintain UK competitiveness, but would be likely to cause problems for some commodities, particularly paper. World trade and competition issues would be expected. Externality tax This would tax both primary and secondary materials, but at different levels. This could theoretically reduce the total amount of material used, and/or an increase in the amount of recyclate. World trade and competition issues would be expected. Standards-based scheme Under this approach, a minimum value would be set for recycled content.

This would give a set result, but it would also lead to the substitution of different materials (paper for plastic, glass for plastic, for example). However, this scheme could be tailored to individual sectors, possibly voluntarily. Depending how the scheme was established, companies could also be allowed to trade ‘recycling credits’ amongst themselves. However, House Clearance Huddersfield would like to point out as as some sectors (paper and green cullet) are already using as much recyclate as current capacities allow, they would only be able to meet the change in demand by importing recycled materials (recycled newsprint for example), which would result in an increase in waste going to landfill. Much to think about If nothing else, this report has given us much to think about, although it does raise concerns about some rather questionable ways of improving markets for recycled materials. We can only hope that a realistic and workable approach is adopted, for the sake of the industry it is designed to promote.
