Ceredigion third in Wales recycling league

Following on from the post about recycling on 1st August, figures published today show that Ceredigion is currently third in the Wales recycling league with 47% of waste recycled.

Denbighshire and Ynys Mon are top on 51% and 49.3% respectively. Bottom are Blaenau Gwent on 29.2%, with the Welsh average at 39.2%.

The Welsh government's target for the last year was 40% which Ceredigion achieved comfortably. But the target increases to 52% by 2012/13 with financial penalties for those councils not making it, so the pressure to improve further is very much on.
