Associate Minister for the Environment pedalling industry
propaganda as Glass Recycling Scheme fails to
Scott Simpson, the Associate Minister for the
Environment, has been called out by waste and recycling
experts after falsely claiming New Zealand was recycling 73%
at a glass recycling programme function last week.

40% for all beverage containers.
