To collect the data presented in this report, the first task was to classify the collection by purpose, plastic type and recyclability. To do so, we needed the help of 20 volunteers.
We have applied publicly available statistics to the data collected in this experiment. This has given us the means to make accurate calculations into the fate of my plastic within the UK waste system as well as energy and resource consumption related to the lifecycle of my plastic.
