Wales, with the second-best recycling rate of 63.8 percent for solid municipal waste, is not relaxing on the glory and has set an ambitious target of becoming a “zero waste” nation by 2050.

A comprehensive package of measures from the Welsh government is to be credited for the country’s impeccable record in reducing, reusing and recycling trash, writes Green Matters.

Dedicated funding and a firm commitment to meeting statutory targets in collaboration with local authorities via programs like Collaborative Change Program have been the key factors propelling Wales on the path of waste reduction and sustainable consumption.
