Food and drink businesses brace for impact of recycling price hikes
Recycling costs for plastic and aluminium have more than doubled over the past year, placing a growing strain on food businesses.
Commercial businesses with a turnover of over £2m that produce more than 50 tonnes of waste must purchase packaging recovery notes (PRNs). They are offered in exchange either for packaging recycled directly, or must be purchased in order to cover an equivalent amount recycled elsewhere.
