(from March 2011)
"Wales has an ambition to recycle 70% of its waste by 2025, becoming zero waste by 2050. Scotland has a similar target, adding that only 5% of its current waste should end up in landfill by 2025.
"Its delivery body, Zero Waste Scotland, has just published its programme plan for 2011/15. It highlights as a barrier the limited reprocessing capacity in the country particularly around food waste, textiles and plastics.
"It therefore prioritises setting up the infrastructure for processing these materials and creating markets, based on the carbon impact and the potential for creating jobs and wealth."
