Key proposals include:

  • A move away from shared responsibility for packaging waste to a single point of obligation (this aligns with producer responsibility regimes in the EU)
  • Lowering the de-minimis threshold to £1m and 25 tonnes
  • Mandatory takeback and recycling for disposable cups
  • Obligating online marketplaces for filled packaging
  • Eco-modulation to make waste management fees lower for more recyclable packaging

The consultation closes on 4 June 2021.

Producers can prepare for the forthcoming changes by implementing a sustainable packaging policy that aims to reduce, reuse and improve the recyclability of their packaging.
