A tangle of red tape is hampering Danish efforts to reduce and recycle rising volumes of waste, according to local authorities' association KL and sector group "waste denmark". The organisations have proposed simplifying regulations, increasing competition and giving companies more choice and freer access to waste depots and treatment/recycling plants. Noting that such measures were agreed in principle two years ago (EED 20/12/04), the associations urge the government to step aside and let local authorities and waste companies get on with it. See KL press release, waste denmark, and joint proposals.
