“Manufacturers to pay full recycling costs in bid to stop waste”

“Manufacturers will pick up the burden of paying for recycling under new government plans which hope to cut down on waste going to landfill. Currently councils pay 90% of the bill for recycling, but if a new strategy gets the green light this will go to the product manufacturers, forcing them to think about sustainable packaging. Producers will have to pay the full net cost of disposing or recycling the packaging, with money going to councils to help them improve waste and recycling systems.”
