Waste Prevention Programme for England

The Department for Environment, Food & Rural Affairs (DEFRA) has published today (11th December 2013) it’s Waste Prevention Programme for England. This programme sets out the roles and actions for government and others to reduce the amount of waste produced in England, and is a requirement of the revised Waste Framework Directive (2008/98/EC).

The documents are found here.

Measures in respect of food waste are found here. NB: food waste (above threshold quantities) must be separated at source and collected separately in Scotland (this is a legal requirement in Scotland, but not in England and Wales). My Query post on Scotland is found here.

NB: the EU is presently reviewing its waste legislation. Information is found here. I will post separately in 2014 on this.
