What must I do with my packaging waste?

Once you have segregated your packaging waste you may either: Present it in your mixed dry recycling bin for collection by an authorised collector, Bring the segregated packaging waste to an authorised facility, such as a civic amenity site, or Bring it to a self-complying major producer. Note: if a person brings waste to an authorised waste facility all reasonable steps shall be taken to (i) minimise the creation of odours and nuisance, (ii) ensure it is suitable (clean, dry and uncontaminated) for recycling / recovery, and, (iii) it complies with a major producers obligations, e.g. if glass is not placed on the market by a major producer then the major producer is not obliged to accept it for recycling / recovery.
