Details of outcome
This guidance supports the Recycling, Preparation for Re-use and Composting Targets (Definitions) (Wales) Order 2011 and Regulations 4 and 5 of The Recycling, Preparation for Re-use and Composting Targets (Monitoring and Penalties) (Wales) Regulations 2011.
The guidance is prepared under section 7 of the Waste (Wales) Measure 2010. It supports the definitions in the order and the monitoring regime set under regulations 4 and 5 of the regulations.
This guidance will provide clarity on:
- the definitions of recycling preparation for re-use and composting contained in the order
- the monitoring and reporting requirements contained in the regulations.
We are also seeking your views on proposals to introduce legislation that will define the position on:
- the de-watering (the removal of water from) anaerobic digestion (AD) digestate (what is left after digestion) from facilities
- how the recovery rates from AD composting and the recycling of IBA and air pollution control residues (APCR) are calculated for facilities that take materials from multiple sources.
