The 25 Year Environment Plan sets out our commitment to make it easier for people to recycle and to increase the quantity and quality of materials collected. Through the Framework for Greater Consistency, the Waste and Resources Action Programme is working with industry and local authorities to promote improved recycling performance and to ensure that a consistent set of core materials are collected by all local authorities. We want to accelerate this process and want householders to benefit from having comprehensive waste and recycling collections which ensure that products are recycled as much as possible and high quality materials are returned to the economy. We will set out measures to support this in our Resources and Waste Strategy to be published later this year.
