PackCare compliance gets green light

Posted on 22nd November, 2008

PackCare Compliance, a new packaging compliance scheme, has been launched by the WasteCare Group, following the receipt of Government approval.

The scheme aims not only to increase the amount of packaging that is recycled but also to substantially reduce the cost of compliance for members.

PackCare Chief Executive Bob Taylor says:

“PackCare Compliance will build on the success of the group’s WeeeCare compliance scheme, launched in 2007. We intend to eliminate the mystique surrounding compliance and bring immediate savings to our members. All too often in the past registered packaging producers have complained at the lack of transparency and horrendous costs associated with compliance.”

With the sudden close of the Chinese market for recyclables, our entry into this sector has come at an important time for this industry.
