Businesses and manufacturers will pay the full cost of recycling or disposing of their packaging waste, under a new strategy announced by environment secretary Michael Gove.
The overhaul England’s waste system, making businesses legally responsible for waste by leaving them to foot the bill, will see the introduction of a consistent set of recyclable material for collection, subject to consultation.
Businesses will then have to pay higher fees if products are difficult to recycle. The move is expected to raise between £0.5bn and £1bn a year, to be reinvested into recycling and disposal.
The government hopes the policy will eliminate avoidable plastic waste and help preserve the environment.
