Rubbish Removal Services: Will Science Make Our Rubbish Disappear?
Rubbish Removal Services: when we think about waste and rubbish removal services, we often have images of overflowing landfills and unchecked pollution in our minds. As regular readers of this blog will know however, it does not have to be like that and we like to publicise new developments in the sector that can help the environment. For example, see our blogs on commercial bins and national resource recovery.

Will rubbish removal services be obsolete in the future? – maybe!
We are seeing some incredible advances in science – such as 3d printing which promises to revolutionise the manufacturing and distribution industries. Mr Waster was very interested to read an article on the BBC website about a caterpillar that can consume plastic. We quote from the article below:
“A caterpillar that munches on plastic bags could hold the key to tackling plastic pollution, scientists say.”
“Researchers at Cambridge University have discovered that the larvae of the moth, which eats wax in bee hives, can also degrade plastic.”
“Experiments show the insect can break down the chemical bonds of plastic in a similar way to digesting beeswax.”
“Dr Bombelli and colleague Federica Bertocchini of the Spanish National Research Council have patented the discovery.”
“They want to speed up the process of discovering the chemical secrets behind the natural degradation of plastic.”
“They think microbes in the caterpillar – as well as the insect itself – might play a role in breaking down plastic.”
“If the chemical process can be identified, it could lead to a solution to managing plastic waste in the environment.”
