Danes issue waste strategy to 2008

Denmark's environmental protection agency (EPA) has published its waste strategy for 2005-2008 focusing as expected on the relative costs and benefits of different measures. The 250-page document says the overall aim of the strategy is to "uncouple the increase in the volume of waste from economic growth" in line with the government's sustainable development policies.
