Waste regulations

The EU is revising a number of pieces of legislation as part of the Circular Economy Strategy. In the UK, Defra published its Resources and Waste Strategy at the end of 2018 and has already consulted on several aspects of packaging waste.

The targets for recovering Waste Electrical and Electronic Equipment (WEEE) increased this year and Defra is proposing to consult on a revision to the UK Regulations in the autumn. AMDEA continues its participation in the Joint Trade Associations Group, a consortium of 10 trade associations working with three Producer Compliance Schemes on ways to improve the UK WEEE system.
