Urgent action called for on glass

A comprehensive review of glass recycling is desperately needed if the UK is to stand any chance of hitting its 2008 packaging-recovery target, according to a key figure.Rexam Glass director Nigel Pritchard has told MRW that a major restructuring of policy is needed for glass packaging recycling to reach 71% in 2008.Pritchard believes that rising mixed-glass collections and a shortage of proven alternative markets for waste glass will make the 2008 level unattainable.
