Glass makes bricks
The export is authorised by the Environment Agency and several UK CRT processing firms are very upset stating this practice would not be allowed in the UK, where the law stipulates that the CRT glass must be reprocessed in the UK to BATRRT (best available treatment recovery and recycling techniques). It seems the Legioblocks fall below British reprocessing guidelines and yet they are sold back to us.
The Environment Agency is defending its stance on the export to the Netherlands company - a spokesman saying "Once waste is turned into blocks it is not a waste product, as such it is not subject to waste regulations.”
