'Sort recycling' EU rule concerns Welsh councils

Help

Many households in Wales could soon be forced to sort recycling into separate containers after new EU rules means single bag collections could be banned.

At present, around half of councils allow people to put all their recycling in the same bag to be sorted later.

But the European directive could mean recycled waste would have to be separated before collection from 2015.

Councils have warned of "far reaching consequences" if they are forced to change the way they collect recycling.
