The glass recycling by remelt target has stayed the same at 67% of the glass obligation.

The recycling factor which is multiplied by turnover to calculate the obligation for small producers has stayed the same at 30.

The news comes just as provisional figures indicate that 2017 targets are likely to be achieved. The official figures are expected in March. However, the Packaging sector is cautious as concerns remain that targets for 2018 onwards could be more difficult to achieve.

We’re pleased to confirm that ToddPak exceeded its targets for 2017. If you’d like to discuss your packaging compliance requirements, do contact us or visit http://toddpak.co.uk/members/members-benefits/ to explore the benefits to you.
