Newport residents urged to start recycling everywhere

NEWPORT City Council is asking residents to not only recycle at home but also when out as part of national Recycling Week.

The Welsh Government has funded 1,041 recycling bins over the last year and Newport council is urging residents to use them.

Councillor Ken Critchley, cabinet member for infrastructure, said: “Recycling helps the environment and we ask residents to remember to recycle when they are out and about.

Andrew Osborne, of Recycle for Wales, said: “Wales has many beautiful places to visit and a large number provide recycling bins.”

Newport City Council is aiming for the Welsh Government target of 70 per cent recycling by 2025.

It's not the WAG but the EU Commission who set the targets...who then get the EU parliament to rubber stamp the Directive to member nations....

.....the following is taken from Letsrecyle.com website....
'The European Commission looks set to press ahead with plans to lay a 70% by 2030 recycling target alongside a landfill ban on recyclable waste from 2025, under proposals to be put forward later this month.

A draft version of the proposals to be sent by the Commission to the European Parliament and the Council of Ministers, seen by letsrecycle.com, details the resource measures likely to form the EU’s long-awaited circular economy package.

The European Commission's policy proposals for resource efficiency measures are set to be revealed later this month
Other measures that are included in the policy proposals include an increase in the packaging recycling target to 80% by 2030, with an interim target of 60% by 2020, and 70% by 2025. This is likely to include individual targets for specific materials.'

....yet another reason to vote UKIP

How long will it be before Newport residents have to traipse around with a shopping trolley full of various coloured boxes and bags, to help them recycle wherever they are?

Vote UKIP because the European Parliament have made a sensible decision? The whole method of waste disposal was unsustainable and only when threatened financially, did anything get done about it. The theory is good but it's the local government who have a messed up system of collection and facilities.

That's incorrect. Recycling targets are set by Welsh government as set out in the Toward Zero Waste policy document.

Read that before spouting your anti euro rubbish. In any case the EU policy is overwhelmingly positive and will benefit Europe and the world, why should that be a problem?

Wales lead the way in the UK on recycling and in fact the third highest recyclers in the world. This is something to be proud of.
