Consultation description

We are introducing new regulations that are expected to come into force on 1 October 2023 and require all non-domestic premises (including businesses, and the public and the third sector) to separate key recyclable materials in the way the majority of Wales householders already do.

We are also running a consultation on the Separate Collection of Waste Materials for Recycling: A Code of Practice for Wales 

See the related closed consultation: Increasing recycling by businesses.
