Ahead of the closing date next week, Ecosurety has made publicly available its responses to the four government packaging consultations.
In February this year, Defra launched of a series of detailed consultations into the future of packaging extended producer responsibility, a new Deposit Return Scheme, a new plastic packaging tax and improving consistency of recycling collections.
This followed the publication of the ambitious Resources & Waste Strategy in December last year. This strategy sets out plans to comprehensively reform the UK’s approach to managing waste materials and move the UK towards a more circular economy.
