A successful blueprint

The municipal recycling rate in Wales reached 60% in 2015/16. A series of videos and case studies share the experiences of Welsh local authorities following different aspects of the Welsh Government’s collections blueprint.
Topics covered include residual restrictions, food waste collections, recycling from flats and increasing recycling at household waste recycling centres.
