star this property answer text <p>In 2018/19 167 local authorities out of 327 (51%) offered food waste collection services for residents.</p><p>One of the commitments in the Resource and Waste Strategy was to work towards zero food waste to landfill by 2030. Our ‘consultation on consistency in household and business recycling collections England’ sought views on food waste being collected separately from dry recycling materials and other types of waste from households and businesses. Given the support for this proposal, the Government will legislate to ensure that every local authority in England provides a separate food waste collections from 2023.</p> more like this

star this property answer text <p>The introduction of the 5p Carrier Bag Charge has been highly effective at reducing consumption of single-use carrier bags. Composting standard EN 13432 defines the requirements for biodegradability of products required to meet the standard. This requires the use of an industrial composter. Compostable bags can be disposed of in foodwaste collections but only if the householder’s local authority uses an industrial composting process to treat the waste (some use anaerobic digestion). The Government would need to ensure that there was the right infrastructure in place and that the environmental benefits outweighed using conventional plastics before legislating to mandate that all plastic bags were compostable. That evidence is not yet available.</p> more like this

star this property answer text <p>UK ports are an important part of the pre-production plastic pellets supply chain. As such, we have welcomed the moves by PD Teesport and the Port of Felixstowe to sign up to Operation Clean Sweep and call for other UK ports to do the same. However, we must continue to engage all stages of the supply chain, such as manufacturing, logistics and processing, if we want to tackle the scourge of plastic pellet loss effectively. Collaboration with the British Plastics Federation is key to making this happen.</p> more like this

A recent consultation on the progress made towards GES showed that whilst progress was being made further work was needed.</p><p> </p><p>The updated UK Marine Strategy Part I assesses an array of ocean health factors as well as economic and social analyses of the way we use our marine environment and the benefits it provides us. The updated assessments will be published later this year, giving improved information to the scientists working on the UK’s Ocean Assessment Score.</p><p> </p><p>The UK is already a global leader in protecting seas, the ocean and marine life.
