Gove outlines four-point plastic waste plan

Environment Secretary Michael Gove has told the BBC of his four-point plan for tackling plastic waste and hopes for making it simpler for people to recycle.

During an informal meeting, Gove said that he wants to cut the total amount of plastic in circulation, reduce the number of different plastics in use, improve the rate of recycling and make it easier for individuals to know what goes into the recycling bin and what goes into general rubbish.

It has been reported that Gove is considering introducing common standards throughout local authorities to make recycling simpler, changing the current landscape whereby schemes differ between authorities. However, councils and waste exports have warned that there is no one-size-fits-all solution to the problem.
