We want your views on options for new material-specific recycling targets for paper, steel, aluminium and wood and new overall recovery and recycling targets for 2018-20.
We are consulting on business recycling targets for 2018-20.
The options are:
- let the current legislation expire and have no business targets.
- extend the 2017 targets until 2020.
- set targets to achieve the Circular Economy Package recycling targets for 2025.
- optimise targets based on cost-benefit analysis for each material.
