Recycling services in Wales 'too complicated and confusing'

Recycling services are too complicated, uneconomic and confusing, a Welsh government adviser has said.

Sustainable futures commissioner Peter Davies wants one system of recycling rather than 22 different ones in each local authority.

The Welsh government said targets were tough but achievable and was giving £66m to councils to reduce costs.

Many councils have already restricted how much can be thrown away. A range of options are bring considered in Torfaen, including collecting the rubbish once a month.

Paul Heaney reports.
