Recycling and the Law

With recent changes to recycling laws it is vital that your company recycles as much of the waste it produces as possible.

Waste can be described in several ways. It is defined in the law as “any substance or object which the holder discards or intends or is required to discard” (Waste Framework Directive 2008/98/EC).

Anyone who produces, imports, keeps, stores, transports, treats or disposes of waste must take all reasonable steps to ensure that waste is managed properly. For businesses disposing of waste efficiently is becoming much more important. It is estimated that over half of what goes into our bins can be recycled or composted.
