DoE announces review of packaging waste regime

The Government has announced a far-reaching review of the packaging waste recovery regime which came in to force earlier this year. The share-out of obligations between the four sectors in the packaging chain will be reassessed this year, followed by a full-scale review of the regulations in 1998. Meanwhile, new proposals from the paper industry for a scheme that would control the waste paper packaging market have put it into direct conflict with initiatives in the waste industry - leaving the Office of Fair Trading (OFT) with some difficult decisions to take.
