Defra publish consultation on Consistency in household and business recycling in England.

Defra have published the long awaited consultation on recycling consistency. This is the third of the Resources and Waste Strategy consultations, along with the consultations on producer responsibility for packaging and deposit return schemes.

Following the first consultation on “Consistency in Household and Business Recycling Collections in England”, which closed in May 2019, measures were introduced in the Environment Bill requiring a set of recyclable waste streams to be collected from households, businesses and non-domestic premises, such as hospitals and schools.

This consultation seeks to gather views on the detail of these proposals, including how the Environment Bill powers should be used and how these policies should be implemented.

Below we have summarised the main proposals focusing on the requirements that will affect Organics. Please login to access this.
