The Welsh government said it will also consult on new statutory guidance for local authorities and plans to create new regulations requiring businesses to separate their waste in the way households already do.

The Welsh government and the UK government will consult on a Deposit Return Scheme and Extended Producer Responsibility before Christmas. Welsh ministers are also in discussions with the UK government on possible taxation measures to tackle plastic waste, including a potential tax on single-use plastics.
