Warning on Anglo-Welsh waste recycling

A British professional accountancy body has warned that local authority spending on household waste recycling will have to nearly triple within four years if government targets are to be met. Cipfa puts the household waste recycling rate in England and Wales in 2001-2 at 11.3%, slightly less than the UK environment ministry's recent estimate of 12.4% in England the same year. The ministry accepted this spring that its target of 25% recycling by 2005 looked unachievable and launched a new policy review (EED 08/05/03). See Cipfa press release and official municipal waste statistics.
