Packaging Waste Regulations do they affect your business?

Did you

know that there is a legal obligation on UK businesses, which make or use

packaging to ensure that a percentage of their packaging is recycled? More than

10 million tonnes of packaging waster is generated in the UK each year, 6

million tonnes of which can be recycled.


Responsibility Law’ is in place to make sure that businesses who manufacture,

import or sell products are responsible for them one they become waste. This

law encourages minimisation and recycling of waste.

If your

company has an annual turnover of more than £2 million and handle more than 50

tonnes of packaging a year you must meet the producer obligations under the

packaging regulations. Your business also has an obligation to recycle if you

own the packaging and supply it to others, or if you import packaging.

If you

are a manufacturer or seller who uses packaging in volume, it is worth getting

to know the legal position on recycling, since you could receive a fine or

prosecution for non-compliance.

If you

need any help on packaging waste regulations, contact Packaging Supplies, or

alternatively you can find out more about your legal responsibilities on the

Environment Agency website.
