A key objective of 'Towards Zero Waste' is for 70% of household waste to be recycled by 2025. This objective will be underpinned by statutory recycling targets for individual local authorities.

This study, commissioned by the Welsh Assembly Government (WAG), examines the relative merits of different dry recycling collection systems (co-mingled, two-stream and kerbside sort) in relation to WAG’s sustainability objectives, with a view to informing the policy framework within which local authorities will deliver changes to their services so that the target may be achieved.
