From April 2012, landfill tax will rise by £8.00 to £56.00 per tonne, putting pressure on businesses to manage their waste more efficiently. Along with the government’s changes to the waste hierarchy directive, as discussed in this article in March, there is an added pressure to businesses to ensure they are conforming to government legislation. The increased landfill tax will encourage the effective and sustainable reuse, recycling and disposal of waste. RPS services can help you to reduce your overall packaging usage and spend and help to reuse transit packaging through recovery. RPS are also happy to confirm that none of the packaging collected, even if it is deemed as not fit for purpose and reuse, will ever to go landfill, boosting your companies environmental credentials and conforming to government legislation.
