Recycling Rates Fall in Wales 

Wales is renowned for its dedication to recycling, but this year the volume of waste collected has fallen for the first time in more than 20 years according to the Welsh Government. The amount of waste sent for recycling has dropped to just over 971 thousand tonnes.The Welsh Government has said that the drop in recycling rate is partly due to improvements in the accuracy of wood end destination reporting in 2017-18.This comes as the Environment Agency has said that there has been little improvement shown in the last year with regard to waste crime statistics and the volume of companies being dealt with for waste crime.
