The rate of waste is growing by about three per cent annually and the UK is still only recycling around 20 per cent in total – far behind other European countries such as Germany and The Netherlands, which recycle up to 50 per cent of their total waste.

The message around recycling is growing and there are attractive business opportunities open to entrepreneurs who want to operate in the waste space. These opportunities are varied and offer high growth potential. Some specialist businesses collect waste oil from restaurants and convert it into biofuel for transport; others operate private waste management collections for businesses and divert the waste to energy recovery centres, which can incinerate it to generate heat. Some businesses upcycle materials that have been thrown out as rubbish and others act as environmental and sustainability consultants, advising homes and businesses how they can slash their waste and accompanying carbon emissions.

Growing any kind of business requires investment, of course; however, the necessary finance can be hard to come by, especially where high street banks are concerned. Fortunately, a new wave of specialist business lenders is filling the gap with an attractive, business-focused and flexible finance offer.
