Please note this report just focuses on the waste polymers of ethylene commodity code (391510), as exports of other plastics are relatively small in volume

February saw a recovery after a really poor January for exports of waste polymers of ethylene.

As exporters got used to new Basel and Turkish regulations, plus Brexit paperwork, 31,507 tonnes was able to leave the UK compared to just 17,339 tonnes in January.

Despite the new restrictions, February was a really good month for exports to Turkey with 21,847 tonnes heading there more than doubling January’s 10,780 tonnes. This was the best month in fact for Turkey since we started collecting this data in 2013.

The EU was the only other significant destination with 9,537 tonnes up from 6,558 tonnes in January.

Of this, 3,320 tonnes went via the Netherlands, up from 2,752 tonnes in January. Spanish imports increased to 2,223 tonnes from 1,849 tonnes the month before. While France also went up to 1,151 tonnes from 431 tonnes in January.
