The Government will set up a pilot scheme to reduce food waste. The scheme will be supported by £15 million of additional funding which has been allocated to tackle food waste. The pilot scheme will be developed over the coming months in collaboration with businesses and charities. The scheme will launch in 2019/20.
UK Plastics Pact summit on 11th October highlighted plastics issues, progress of the Pact and some of its future work. The UK Circular Plastics Flagship Projects Competition was launched at this event.
Compostable carrier bags will replace plastic ones in nearly 1,400 Co-op food stores in areas where compostable ones are accepted in food waste collections. Their use as liners for caddies and food waste bins, suitability for home composting, other features and price support householder switching and less plastic contamination of food waste.
