Detail of outcome
We received 210 responses to the public consultation for the Waste Prevention Programme for England from a range of individuals and organisations with an interest in waste prevention. These included responses from:
- public sector (including local authorities)
- members of the public
- service sector
- retail sector
- trade associations
- advisory bodies
The views expressed in this consultation were taken into account in the development of the Waste Prevention Programme for England.
We are seeking views on the proposed roles and responsibilities that government, individuals and organisations will have in helping to reduce waste.
Your views will help us finalise the first waste prevention programme for England. We plan to publish this by December 2013. The programme is required by the revised Waste Framework Directive (2008/98/EC). It will also take forward a commitment made in the government review of waste policy in England 2011.
The devolved administrations are developing their own waste prevention programmes which will be published separately.
