Wales hits recycling targets

Wales hits recycling targets
Just over 41 percent of household waste was recycled in Wales between July and September last year, new figures show.

The data, published by the Welsh Assembly Government, revealed that there was an increase of 3.5 percentage points in recycling over this period, leading the country to meet its recycling targets for the quarter.

According to the figures, there has also been a continuing decline in total municipal waste produced.

This fell by 1.4 percent between July and September 2009 and is indicative of a downward trend that has been witnessed since 2004-05.

Welsh environment minister Jane Davidson said: "Local authorities are continuing to expand their recycling and composting services which make this possible.

"Around 51 percent of households now have a food waste collection service. This is increasing and I expect that as close to 100 percent of possible households will have a separate food waste collection service by 2012-13."
