Plastics & Rubber Weekly – Defra must deliver on PRN reforms, says BPF.

The British Plastics Federation’s (BPF) recycling group has written to Defra junior minister Richard Benyon, about the urgent need to reform the PRN system.

“With the recent ministerial re-shuffle ministers are likely to be taking stock but it is crucial that they follow through by capitalising on the opportunity to improve UK recycling infrastructure, which we believe will be fundamental to achieving recycling targets going forward,” said the group’s chairman Roger Baynham.

The recycling group wants a producer responsibility system that encourages reprocessing in the UK rather than the export of unprocessed waste.
