Regulation 13 of the Waste (England and Wales) Regulations 2011 (as amended) implements a revised Waste Framework Directive requirement for separate collection of materials. For businesses, this means that from 1 January 2015 you must separate waste paper, metal, plastic and glass if your waste collector has deemed it ‘technically, environmentally and economically practicable’.
Now would be a good time to start looking at how you can be ready to meet this deadline.
- If you aren’t already recycling these materials, should you be?
- Are you able to generate an income stream from waste materials?
- Can you minimise the waste you produce, thereby meeting the requirement to apply the waste hierarchy?
If you would like to discuss any of these questions, we would be delighted to hear from you. Just call 01491 872837 or 01491 682850.
