I did a bit of research as a result of a question on oneclimate.net
Information collected for Defra by the Environment Agency on packaging waste shows how much material is exported and how much is recycled in the UK:
Material Reprocessed in the UK / Reprocessed Abroad
Paper 49% / 51%
Glass 81% / 19%
Aluminium 66% / 34%
Plastic 33% / 67%
Wood 100% / 0%
The CPI figures, which include newsprint, indicate a balance of about 47% domestic reprocessing and 53% export.
