Scotland 'hits recycling targets'

Scotland has reached its target of recycling 25% of municipal waste, according to figures for the second quarter of 2005/06.

The Scottish Environment Protection Agency statistics, covering the period from July to September, were welcomed by Environment Minister Ross Finnie.

But he said that more had to be done to improve Scotland’s record, a call echoed by unions and environmentalists.

The minister launched a consultation to seek views on the issue.
