Just back from Cardiff after a meeting with all Wales Environment Cabinet members and Welsh Assembly officials.

On the agenda was the "Municipal Sector Waste Plan" which will be out for public consultation on 21st June. The plan will basically set out the details of how local authorities will meet the targets of 70% recycling and composting levels to be achieved by 2024/25. Conwy is currently recycling and composting 42% so as you can see we need to improve by an additional 28% by 2024/25, failure to meet the target may result in fines of £200 per Tonne over the exceeded limit.

On another note, whilst in Cardiff I was approached by beggars on 4 occasions, this has never happened to me before in Cardiff. A sad sign of the times??

    Most beggars do so because its easy money, they are perfectly capable of working for a living like the rest of us.

  2. I must say that I worked in London for a little while and actually saw "Commuter Beggars", arriving on the early train at Waterloo and leaving early evening, some locals said they earned more than we did.
