World record ping response time!
in a word, "Rubbish!"
They have no idea how much actual recycling is taking place.
These reports are based upon the grossest manipulation of unreliable statistics and bureaucratic estimates.
The reality is they have browbeat a majority of businesses and homes into participating in "recycling". The ratio of recycled to disposed residential waste in my county is about 25/75 based upon what is left at curbside each week.
The ability of the average household to actually classify waste between the different containers is unmeasured and probably fairly low.
