CRR praises LAs high regard for source separated collections

Results showing 79% of local authorities (LAs) thought that source separated collections give reprocessers the best quality materials have been welcomed by the Campaign for Real Recycling (CRR). The figures were part of MRWs State of the Nation Report 2008 published earlier this month.

CRR spokesman Phil Hurst said: It is heartening that the vast majority of councils surveyed think that source separated collections give reprocessors the best quality materials.

If only the views of your readers were reflected in collection policy at the ground level. If 79% of all LAs, as many as agreed with the survey statement, practiced source segregation we would not need a Campaign for Real Recycling; collection costs for LAs would be lower; and our reprocessing industry would be looking to expand, employing more people and benefiting the UK economy as a whole."
