Detail of outcome
We received 45 responses to this consultation. The legislation was updated to include the revised targets:
We want to know what you think about our plans to introduce new business targets under the Producer Responsibility Obligations (Packaging Waste) Regulations.
The regulations require producers of packaging to make sure that a proportion of the packaging they handle is recovered and recycled.
The proposed changes would set new targets for overall recovery and recycling between 2018 and 2020. It will also set new material specific targets for paper, steel, aluminium and wood.
These changes are being considered because the current targets expire in 2017.
