Tougher green laws, for a greener environment

December 23, 2018

 

 

 

We've launched an ambitious new strategy to eliminate avoidable waste, as part of the government's commitment to the environment.

 

For some key points of the new strategy, we will:

 

  • Legally ensure businesses and manufacturers pay the full cost of recycling or disposing of their packaging waste – up from just 10 per cent now.

  • Call on producers to take more responsibility for items that can be harder or costly to recycle including cars, electrical goods, and batteries.

  • End confusion over what to recycle at home with new plans for a consistent approach across England.

  • Consult on ensuring weekly collections of food waste for every home, introducing a deposit return scheme and introducing mandatory food waste prevention targets for businesses.

This is a great step to reducing and gradually eliminating 'throwaway' culture.
