UK: Recycled packaging 'may end up in landfill', warns National Audit Office; Compare with Corfu

From BBC News

Roger Harrabin writes: "You try to be virtuous, wiping the curdling yoghurt off a plastic pot, then putting it in the recycling bin. Perhaps you envisage the pot eventually re-incarnated as a frisbee or maybe even a plastic bench. But don’t rest easy. Your pot might get burned or buried in landfill, and you’d never know. The National Audit Office (NAO) says over half of the packaging reported as recycled is actually being sent abroad to be processed".

On Corfu:

Where does the recyclable waste go? Enimerosi

Town Council emergency meeting breaks up with the parties walking out

Corfu Update: The Municipality will be responsible for mixed waste and private contractors for recyclable materials

"Garbage Island"

Hoteliers preparing new campaign to repair Corfu΄s (rubbish) image

"There is no excuse for the situation that the destination of Corfu finds itself in. The damage that has been done is harming our tourist product and will harm it for the coming decade.
Enough is enough - we can no longer put up with this mockery".
