Keeping plastics out of digestates and composts

The REA has worked with ADBA as part of the Food Waste Recycling Action Programme (FWRAP) to develop a position paper about keeping plastic out of digestates and composts. This paper covers issues relevant to plastics and biodegradable waste materials supplied for composting or AD treatment, including steps that operators, local authorities and the packaging industry can take to help achieve our aim for plastics-free composts and digestates. It also provides a number of useful links to signpost readers to additional information regarding this hot topic.

This is intended as an information resource for any operators or local authorities who are asked questions about what steps are taken by industry to keep plastics out of composts and digestates.
