Does reluctance in the waste sector to manage recyclables price risk presents opportunities for the insurance sector? Over 6 million tonnes of recyclables (e.g. paper, card, metals, plastics, glass) are collected annually from 23 million households in England and the volumes are expected to increase further in the future.
