The waste sector in 2021: Lessons learned from lockdown

Blog from Dr Adam Read, External Affairs Director for SUEZ recycling and recovery UK
I would like to take this opportunity, being my first blog of the year, to wish you all a Happy New Year, and I hope you had a safe and happy Christmas. However, what will the new year bring? If BREXIT wasn’t enough for us all to cope with, COVID continues to surprise us and not in a good way, with a new national lockdown and restrictions as tight as at any time back in the Spring of 2020 plus of course the schools closing and many of us becoming part-time teachers alongside our day jobs. With this in mind, it seems like a good time to reflect on how the sector fared during lockdown 2020 and consider if the sector is primed for what could be a tough first half to 2021.
