The Recycling Association chief executive Paul Sanderson said: “This further delay to implementation of Extended Producer Responsibility is unbelievable.
“We’ve been waiting too long for EPR and Consistency of Collections to be introduced, and we need to get on with it.
“Both of these policies have the potential to transform the UK recycling landscape, and provide essential funds to develop UK infrastructure. We’ve had too many years of drift already since these policies were first announced in 2018, and now it seems we won’t get any further until at least 2025. That is too long, especially as much of the detail should have long been worked out.
“This delay must ensure that we are fully ready to implement EPR and Consistency of Collections soon after with all of the policy detail worked out and agreed.”
