Distribution of recovered plastic export destinations from the UK 2019

In the first half of 2019, Turkey was the United Kingdom's main export destination for recovered plastic, receiving a 26.3 percent share of the UK's total recovered plastic exports that year. This was followed by Hong Kong and the Netherlands.

In previous years, China was the UK's main export destination for plastics, but in 2018 the country announced a ban on the import of mixed, unsorted paper, household, and commercial plastics.
