Packaging Waste Compliance - January 2017

10 January 2017

If your annual turnover exceeds £2m per year and you have handled more than 50 tonnes of packaging, you must register under the Producer Responsibility Obligations (Packaging Waste) Regulations. If you fail to register by the 7th April this can lead to a court fine of several thousand pounds. Many companies choose to join a compliance scheme who will take over many of the requirements, however they require registration much earlier.

The HTA’s Threshold Calculator enables you to check if you have handled more than 50 tonnes of packaging. This calculator is available for just £155 plus vat, which will then be deducted from the price of your Packaging Waste Workbook should you need one. Alternatively, you can just purchase the Packaging Waste Workbook only if required.

If you would like to order the Threshold Calculator or the Packaging Waste workbook please call the HTA Services department 0333 003 3550. If you have any questions regarding the completion of either of the products or regulation requirements, please call our Waste Regulations advice line on 0333 005 0177 or email
