Consultation description

We want to know what you think about our proposals to enhance enforcement powers for the Environment Agency, Natural Resources Wales and local authorities. We are also asking for evidence on a range of measures to tackle waste crime and persistent poor performance in the waste management industry.

Views from the call for evidence will inform future proposals to bring about a level playing field for the legitimate waste industry. This includes encouraging growth through investment.
