Meg delighted with record recycling levels

Thursday, April 30, 2009

Sheffield Heeley MP Meg Munn has welcomed figures released by the Department of Environment Food and Rural Affairs (DEFRA) showing that almost two thirds of all packaging produced in 2008 was recycled, exceeding targets of 50% set by the European Union.

 

Meg said:

 

“These encouraging figures demonstrate how everyone can take part in helping to lower the UK’s carbon emissions. I am pleased to see families and businesses acting together to tackle climate change, and hope that these figures will prompt even wider participation.”

 

Last year UK businesses contributed to saving around 8.9 million tonnes of carbon dioxide through recycling package waste. In addition to packaging, the UK also exceeded all EU targets for recyclable materials, including paper, which exceeded targets by 10%, and wood, which exceeded targets by over 60%.
