The Government has set all Local Authorities in England and Wales statutory recycling targets to meet. As we are committed to recycling, and have previously performed well, we have been set the highest target to reach.
- To recycle and compost 45% of household waste by 2015, and 50% of household waste by 2020.
In response to these targets we have adopted a Waste Strategy.
