Recycling rise in Merseyside

Recycling rise in Merseyside
Recycling figures in Merseyside have increased by just under one-third in the past decade, new figures have shown.

Research from the Merseyside Waste Disposal Authority's (MWDA) found that 33.3 percent of the region's waste is now being disposed of in a manner that is friendly to the environment.

This compares to a rate of just 6.74 percent in 1999, the 2009 Annual Plan report indicated.

Councillor Kevin Cluskey, chairperson of MWDA, claimed that there is still too much low carbon material being sent to landfill sites.

He commented: "There are so many items that could be recycled or reused, or could generate energy, but they simply end up buried in the ground."

MWDA director Carl Beer added: "This is great news but we can't lose sight of the fact that we are still producing too much waste and need to find alternative methods of disposal."

An education and awareness programme run by the MWDA is operating to increase interest and awareness in recycling in Merseyside.
