DEVON County Council is supporting this year's Recycle Week, which runs from June 22 to 28.This year's theme is 'Let's Waste Less' and organisers, Recycle Now, hope that it will persuade everyone to think about new ways of reducing waste or of becoming more proficient in how we recycle.Household waste recycling in Devon is constantly improving with 52 per cent of waste composted and recycled in 2008/09 compared with 49 per cent the previous year. Ten years ago, in 1998/99, the rate for Devon was just 22 per cent. Devon is well on the way to achieving its target of 60 per cent recycling and composting by 2019/2020, but to do that more needs to be done.
