Wasting time. Wasting resources. Wasting energy. Why is Scotland so far behind the rest of the U.K. and Europe?

Why do we still recycle only just over 5% of our waste? Why are we nowhere near the 20% target for recycled household waste that we were supposed to have achieved last year?

How are we going to find a way forward from this shameful position as the worst performer in Europe? Why would a waste- to-energy policy, building incinerators across Scotland, be the worst possible answer?
