Webinar event with Welsh Government
Increasing Business Recycling In Wales
On Thursday 21st November, Recycle Link Wales was delighted to facilitate "Increasing Business Recycling in Wales" webinar event with Dr Andy Rees OBE from Welsh Government and Jane Hall from MyWasteApp
The presentation focused on Welsh Government's draft legislation proposals to encourage recycling and appropriate waste disposal from non-domestic premises.
Under the new legislation requirements, The Welsh Government intends to bring forward regulations under Environment (Wales) Act 2016 that includes amendments to the Environmental Protection Act 1990 and Waste (Wales) Measure 2010 (as amended) and to commence the ban on the disposal of food waste to sewer.
To do this, the Welsh Government will require:
- Business waste producers (including the public sector) to present their wastes separately for collection
- Separate collection of business wastes (including public sector wastes)
- ban specified materials to landfill
- ban specified materials to incineration
- ban the disposal of commercial food waste to sewer
The purpose of the webinar was to give greater details of the legislation and allow participants to interact in polls and pose questions to Welsh Government.
