Local authorities in Wales have reached a 21.9% recycling rate for household waste, according to new figures issued by the Welsh Assembly.
The results of the Municipal Waste Management Survey covering the financial year 2005/06 for Wales also reported that Wales achieved a 25.9% municipal waste recycling rate. This municipal waste figure included the recycling of non-household waste collected by councils, such as rubble and beach waste – but not abandoned vehicles.
The achievement represents an increase in the 18.1% household waste recycling rate and 21.7% municipal waste recycling rate achieved in Wales in 2004/05.
