The Guardian: " 'Shameful' plastic waste to be tackled by government"

Link to The Guardian

"The government will call on councils and businesses to beef up plastic recycling capacity, and better realise the financial value arising from the hundreds of thousands of tonnes of waste plastics discarded each year.

"Describing the continued disposal of plastic bottles and other plastic products to landfill as 'shameful', DEFRA minister Lord Taylor of Holbeach will confirm that government figures show how last year around 240,000 tonnes of plastic bottles were sent to landfill by households with access to kerbside plastic recycling collection – equivalent to nearly half of all bottles used."
