Recycling services 'too complicated and confusing'

Household 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.

Wales recycles more than the rest of the UK but needs to do more to reach the 58% recycling target by next year.

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

Paul Heaney reports for BBC Wales Today.
