There have been many consultations with regard to extended producer responsibility and the packaging waste system in the UK.
Below we list some of the latest consultations and useful documents. As of mid-2019, a major consultation on the future of the packaging waste system in the UK had closed. This was linked to the 2018 Resources and Waste Strategy and once the responses have been analysed, the Department for Food, Environment and Rural Affairs is expected to put forward firmer proposals to change the packaging waste system within a further consultation document. The Scottish Government has also recently confirmed details of the Scottish Deposit Return Scheme.
