Room for improvement for recycling in Northern Ireland

Northern Ireland has failed to significantly improve 2008s recycling rates, after it increased the percentage of municipal waste sent for recycling by just over 1% in a year. In total, 29.9% of municipal waste was sent for recycling and composting in the final quarter of 2009, a slight increase over the same period in 2008, which stood at 28.3%.
