UK Wales: Guide on separate collection recyclable materials

28 January 2015

The Welsh Government has published guidance on waste management, ahead of new EU legal requirements on the separate collection of waste paper, metal, plastic and glass for recycling, due to come into force at the start of next year.
All organisations responsible for waste collection, including waste collection businesses and local authorities, will be required to collect waste paper, metal, plastic and glass in a way that maximises the amount of materials that can be recycled. Separating the materials avoids contamination and ensures that they can be recycled to a higher standard, creating more valuable products (News Item Welsh Government, 17 December 2014).
