The Regulations

The Packaging Waste Regulations “The Producer Responsibility Obligations (Packaging Waste) Regulations 2007 and Amendments” are a legal requirement, affecting a number of UK businesses and operating like a ‘tax’ on packaging.

Obligated individuals, or groups of companies within the UK, need to calculate the amount of packaging they handle and offset the cost of recycling this material in the UK waste stream.

Although they are called the Packaging Waste Regulations, they are not concerned with the way you dispose of your back door waste, they are concerned with the packaging you handle, or introduce, to the UK as a result of your business activities.

As a Packaging Compliance Scheme, Kite takes on your obligation, and ensures you comply with your legal requirement accurately and efficiently. We aim to manage the entire process for you, demonstrating the Kite philosophy of providing outstanding service.
