star this property answer text <p>The Government has not made an estimate of the volume of consumer electronics that end up in landfill. The 2013 Waste Electrical and Electronic Equipment (WEEE) Regulations seek to reduce the amount of WEEE going to landfill by encouraging its separate collection and subsequent treatment, reuse, recovery, recycling and environmentally sound disposal.</p><p> </p><p>Reports on the amount of WEEE (both household and non-household) collected in the UK under the WEEE Regulations is published by the Environment Agency here: <a href="https://www.gov.uk/government/statistical-data-sets/waste-electrical-and-electronic-equipment-weee-in-the-uk" target="_blank">https://www.gov.uk/government/statistical-data-sets/waste-electrical-and-electronic-equipment-weee-in-the-uk</a>.</p><p> </p><p>Last year, producers financed the collection of 493,323 tonnes of household WEEE.</p><p>Additionally, based on a study carried out by the Waste and Resources Action Programme, we estimate that between 250k and 273k tonnes of large domestic appliances (cookers, washing machines etc.) are collected with scrap metal and recycled outside the WEEE system every year.</p>

star this property answer text <p>The Government published the Resources and Waste Strategy last year, setting out our plans to reduce, reuse and recycle more plastic than we do now. Our target is to eliminate all avoidable plastic waste throughout the life of the 25 Year Environment Plan, but for the most problematic plastics we are going faster.</p><p> </p><p>The 5p charge on plastic bags has reduced their use significantly and we have now consulted on increasing this charge and extending it to all retailers. We have also imposed a ban on microbeads in rinse-off personal care products and have consulted on banning plastic straws, stirrers and cotton buds.</p><p> </p><p>We are currently consulting on extending producer responsibility for packaging, so that producers will be responsible for the full costs of managing packaging waste. We are also exploring the introduction of a deposit return scheme for drinks containers and increasing consistency in the recycling system. We will develop legislative proposals taking account of the consultation responses.</p>

star this property answer text <p>The Government is committed to reducing plastic litter in the marine environment from all sources, including fishing, and this is being achieved through a variety of voluntary schemes and legislation. The Fisheries Bill and the 25 Year Environment Plan set out our clear commitment to sustainable fishing practices and protection of the marine environment.</p><p> </p><p>More specifically, under the MARPOL convention the discharge of garbage into the sea is forbidden. This includes cut-offs of rope and other plastic waste. Additionally, Council Regulation (EC) No. 1224/2009 requires masters of a fishing vessel to attempt to retrieve any gear that is lost as soon as possible. If they are unable to retrieve their lost gear they must notify the UK fisheries authorities. The legislation also helps with the tracing of lost fishing gear by placing a requirement on masters of a fishing vessel using passive gear or beam trawls to mark their fishing gear with the port letter and number of their vessel.</p><p> </p><p>The Resources and Waste Strategy for England will require producers to take responsibility for gear at the end of life stage, and schemes will be in place across Europe.</p><p> </p>

star this property answer text <p>The Department for Business, Energy and Industrial Strategy is the lead Government department for policy on climate change mitigation. Defra is responsible for efforts to reduce greenhouse gas emissions in the natural resources sectors, including agriculture, land use, forestry, waste management, and fluorinated gases. We have halved our emissions from these sectors since 1990 and they now account for 15% of total UK emissions. We recognise the need to go further and are taking forward a number of commitments set out in the 25 Year Environment Plan to reduce emissions further.</p><p>These include: establishing a Lowland Agricultural Peat Taskforce to protect our peat carbon stores and prevent further emissions; making progress towards our target to plant 11 million new trees in this Parliament; implementing our new Resources and Waste Strategy; and continuing to phase down fluorinated gases. The UK is ahead of our international obligations under the Montreal Protocol, having already started to cut hydrofluorocarbons, most recently cutting their usage by 37% since 2018. In the 2018 Autumn Budget, the Chancellor announced £50 million in financing to plant new woodlands to tackle climate change through the Woodland Carbon Guarantee.</p><p> </p><p> </p>
