Calculating your packaging waste obligation can be quite a complicated task, especially for Garden Centres that have many 1000s of products. The regulations require your calculation to be “as accurate as reasonably possible” and so for companies that handle over 50 tonnes of packaging and have a turnover of over £2 million, it is important to get this right.
