The Welsh Assembly Government has published a summary report that shows that local authorities are recycling and composting 32% of its waste.
Minister for Environment, Sustainability and Housing Jane Davidson welcomed the findings: These figures show clearly that nationally Wales is ahead of the target set for recycling and composting, which in addition to reducing the amount of rubbish that goes into landfill also helps in the battle against climate change.
I am also confident from early indications that Wales is progressing well to hitting the 40% target by 2009-10. I would like to congratulate the three local authorities; Powys, Conwy and Ceredigion who have already reached the target.
