EA should do more to tackle packaging waste at source

EA should do more to tackle packaging waste at source
The Environment Agency should do more to tackle packaging waste at its source, according to a limited liability partnerships lawyer.

Stuart Wardlaw of Dickinson Dees told MRW that more should be done to reduce the amount of packaging on products instead of simply focusing on its disposal.

Mr Wardlaw told the publication: "Significant strides have been made so far with the packaging regulations to reduce waste but we still have a long way to go.

"It is unfair to concentrate just on supermarkets when manufacturers package the products at source. People get micro-focused on household recycling initiatives and what councils are doing. But the 'holy grail' is reducing packaging at the manufacturing stage and minimising the waste we get in the first place."

Meanwhile, proposals for the UK's first nappy recycling plant have been approved.

Canadian company Knowaste is to build a facility to recycle 36,000 tonnes of disposable nappies and absorbent hygiene products in Tyseley.
