LONDON , November 24, 2011 (press release) – Defra will make technical changes to the Waste (England and Wales) Regulations 2011 to ensure multi-bin recycling systems are not imposed on residents.

The technical changes will make sure the legislation is in line with new EU rules, including guidance which is currently undergoing consultation. The changes will mean that local authorities will be able to choose the types of recycling services local people want, while ensuring quality recycling is collected.

Defra passed legislation in March which brought the requirements of the EU-revised Waste Framework Directive into UK law. This legislation is currently subject to a Judicial Review. The new draft EU guidance and the Judicial Review process have since highlighted that technical changes are needed to prevent the risk of the legislation being overturned, which could lead to more restrictive recycling collection systems being imposed on local councils and residents.

Defra will seek the views of industry, local authorities and other interested parties to inform the change to be made to the legislation.
