REA and ADBA have published a joint position paper on keeping plastics out of digestates and composts. The paper details the various measures taken to ensure that compost and digestate meet the quality requirements.
NIC support mandatory food waste collections by 2025.
The REA is delighted to see that the recent NIC Assessment recommends that there are separate food waste collections for all by 2025 and that Government set a recycling target of 65% for municipal waste and 75% for plastic packaging by 2030.
The REA has formally signed up to the Plastics Pact, a collaborative initiative to drive circularity of plastic packaging, deliver a step change in driving best practice, stimulating innovation to unlock barriers and engage with citizens.
