star this property answer text <p>The Government is committed to increasing recycling rates. Our consultation on ‘consistency in household and business recycling collections in England’ sought views on how to do this. One of the proposals in the consultation was for all collectors of waste to collect a core set of materials from households and businesses. We believe that if the same core set of materials was collected for recycling there would be less confusion among householders and members of public about what can be recycled. As a result, both the quantity and quality of recycling would increase.</p><p> </p><p>We are currently analysing responses to the consultation and will publish the Government’s response to it shortly.</p><p> </p> more like this
