New law will improve workplace recycling and Wales’ already impressive record

Workplace Recycling

Wales’s already impressive recycling record is set to improve thanks to a new law that has been passed in the Senedd this week.

The Workplace Recycling Regulations will require all business, public and third sector workplaces to separate key recyclable materials in the way that householders already do across most of Wales.

The law will come into force on 6 April 2024 and will increase recycling and reduce the amount of waste sent for incineration and to landfill.

It will also improve the quality and quantity of recyclable materials collected from workplaces, which will in turn capture important materials to be fed back into the Welsh economy.
