Public consultation on reducing waste and improving recycling rates

The Resources and Waste Strategy 2018 set out the UK Government’s ambitions for higher recycling rates, increased resource efficiency and a more circular economy. The target recycling rate for household waste is 50% by 2020, increasing to 65% of waste recycled by 2035 at a time when rates have plateaued. This report makes recommendations to consult on how we might adapt the service to meet these challenging national targets
