The EA yesterday published the interim Q4 2014 packaging recycled data allowing us to undertake a full overview of the 2014 period as a whole as well as take a look at the carry over tonnages for 2015.
The data, which details the recycling and recovery tonnages by material type, confirms that the set 2014 recycling targets were comfortably satisfied as expected.
The packaging recycled data has also revealed a positive carry over of PRNs from 2014 into 2015 for materials across the board.

The Government announced last week that the UK has satisfied the WEEE collection target set for 2014.
As 2014 was the first year under the new WEEE regime since the WEEE recast of 2013, there has been much debate over how well the system would perform.
The Department for Business, Innovation and Skills (BIS) have released a paper to Producer Compliance Schemes (PCSs) outlining the proposed 2015 WEEE collection targets.
The proposal, which was distributed just days after the government’s confirmation that the 2014 WEEE collection targets had been satisfied, also includes an outline of the methodology that will be used to calculate the targets for each WEEE category.

A recent investigations by the Competition and Markets Authority (CMA) has found that millions of households are essentially being penalised for their loyalty when it comes to energy providers.
The inquiry found that more than 95% of consumers who buy both their gas and electricity from one of the ‘Big Six’ energy suppliers (British Gas, EDF Energy, SSE, Scottish power, N Power and E.ON) could have made average savings of between £150 and £234 per year.

The Environment Agency has published new WEEE Dual Use guidance this week (February 23) outlining general principles for assessing whether EEE and WEEE should be classified as B2C or B2B.
The definitions of household and non-household WEEE were amended last year after it was highlighted that the UK’s definitions of household and business WEEE were inconsistent with the definition given by the European commission.
ESOS requires obligated buisnesses to collect a substantial amount of energy consumption data in order to complete the mandatory ESOS energy assessments before the compliance date of 5th December. It may seem like a while away, but are you prepared?
From the ESOS Qualification date of 31st December 2014, any UK business that had over 250 employees in the UK OR a turnover of over £40 million (and a balance sheet of £34 million) will now likely be obligated for the first compliance phase of the Energy Savings Opportunity Scheme (ESOS).
