With the Environment Bill expected to be reintroduced later this month, a House of Commons Library briefing paper on plastic waste in the UK has been published.

While the Environment Bill – which included proposals on a deposit return scheme, consistency in recycling and reform of the extended producer responsibility systems – passed a second reading in October, it fell at the dissolution of parliament for the 2019 General Election.

With the Bill set to return later this month, the briefing is intended to provide an overview of the issue of plastic waste in Britain today.
