Recycling targets 'tough but attainable'

Tough targets are being set to help encourage recycling - but they are being met, it has been suggested.

Waste Watch, a UK-based charity that looks to spread the word about the benefits of sustainable living, said any initiatives aimed at increasing the reuse of plastics are a good thing.

Mike Webster, a spokesperson for the group, said local authorities and the plastics industry were setting impressive targets to double recycling by 2020 - but it was essential these were kept to.

"The targets that local authorities have been set are unquestionably challenging, but their record so far is mostly good," he added, noting it looked likely this could continue.

A recent announcement by the British Plastics Federation detailed a new campaign to increase levels of recycling in the sector and send less harmful waste to landfill.
