Recycling rates remain static for seven years

News | Published:

RECYCLING rates have remained static for seven years, the States have failed to reduce traffic congestion and wildlife is under threat from farming and climate change, a damning report released today has revealed.

The failure of half the Island's parishes to introduce separated waste streams to household refuse collections is a major reason why Jersey's recycling rates have remained stuck at 32 per cent since 2009.

Environment Minister Steve Luce, whose department put the report together, said he was concerned that the findings were not more positive.

Read the key findings from the Environment in Figures report, which looked at the period between 2011 and 2015, in Tuesday's JEP.
