LetsRecycle: "Councils warn Defra over 2020 landfill targets"

Link to web site

"The UK is in danger of missing 2020 landfill targets as councils are collecting more waste, recycling rates are flattening, and residual waste levels are on the rise, local authority waste department heads have warned.

In a letter sent to Defra minister Owen Paterson, the Association of Directors of Environment, Economy, Planning & Transport (ADEPT) claims that the government’s waste and recycling data is ‘out of date’ and urgently needs reviewing if the country is to meet 2020 Landfill Directive targets."
