Defra has announced its intention to consolidate the Producer Responsibility Obligations (Packaging Waste) Regulations 2007 and subsequent updates into revised and consolidated regulations in the course of 2016. The consolidation should not involve any policy changes. However, it is also likely to include revised targets for plastic and glass recycling.

Businesses have been responsible for packaging waste for many years but there remains a significant degree on non-compliance within the business community. Burges Salmon’s team advises businesses on compliance with the regime and we work alongside producer compliance schemes to ensure that businesses get back on track.
