NEVER HAS RECYCLING BEEN MORE IMPORTANT...
In the UK alone, some 400,000 tonnes of waste particle board (such as MDF and chipboard) is discarded each year into landfill. At the same time the government and other agencies are working hard to reduce waste. Laws are coming into force which will have stringent controls on what can go into landfill.
