The Sustainable Insider – Wastecare’s renewed newsletter series launches

Posted on 3rd October, 2023
Wastecare Newsletter - October 2023 issue

Wastecare are extremely proud to re-introduce our newsletter series – The Sustainable Insider. This bi-monthly newsletter will provide insights into the world of hazardous waste management and recycling, from the wider sector as a whole down to the perspectives of Wastecare themselves.

As always, we try to have a fresh and transparent approach to helping our customers and clients navigate the complexities of waste management regulations, learn about some of the innovations from within the sector, and hopefully provide ways in which to recover more value from waste. At the same time, we share our views on the challenges and opportunities that we see in our industry.

In our October 2023 edition, we discuss:

  • The upcoming launch of our new battery collection and recycling initiative Battrecycle
  • Our experience exhibiting at the recent RWM Exhibition
  • The success of our partnership with Podback to rollout coffee pod collections nationwide
  • The EPR data delays for packaging producers
  • Defra’s introduction of a new de facto EEE category for vapes
  • Investigate how influencing public behaviour could reduce battery fires


We will also have a dedicated producer compliance section, to ensure our WEE, battery, and packaging scheme members are kept up to date with the latest regulations surrounding their obligations and data submission deadlines. With upcoming webinars hosted by our Producer Compliance team, and guidance on navigating the complexities of the EPR deadline delayed until May 2024, we will endeavour to use this newsletter to alleviate the extra burden producers are currently facing.

This renewed newsletter will also see an introduction from our Chairman Peter Hunt, who will undoubtedly provide an honest and upfront reflection on the waste sector as we navigate reducing companies’ waste and recovering value.

We hope you enjoy October’s issue of The Sustainable Insider.
