The UK plastics industry wants all plastic packaging and single-use items re-used, recycled and/or recovered by 2030. Leading brands and retailers have already committed to using only reusable, recyclable or compostable packaging by 2025.
The industry has been flushed with new legislations, packaging scheme reforms - with the objective of encouraging recycling.
1st April 2022 - UK-wide Plastic Packaging Tax came into effect where plastic packaging products which contain less than 30% of recycled content are subject to the tax.
In Oct 2023 - the ban of Single Use Plastics caused disarray for many packaging suppliers of the food service industry.
Still to come, the new EPR that replaces the current Packaging Waste Regulations and the payment of the packaging fees to start in 2025.
The UK Government is also expected to roll out a Deposit Return Scheme (DRS) on drink bottles sometime in 2024.
