The Environment Agency has revealed that five producers did not meet their packaging recycling obligations in 2012.

Provisional packaging data for the 2012 compliance period up to 31 January 2013 shows that all 44 compliance schemes met their obligations.

In a statement, the Environment Agency said: “The data, which was initially reported by accredited reprocessors and exporters on the National Packaging Waste Database, provides an indicative position on the amount of packaging waste received for recovery and recycling last year.

“It shows that the total amount of PRN/PERNs which have been issued up to the end of the compliance period on 31 January 2013 by accredited reprocessors and exporters was sufficient to meet the total obligation for all registered producers.

“All 44 UK approved compliance schemes have also indicated in their declaration of compliance that they have met their individual packaging recovery and recycling obligations.

“Five producers have been identified as not having met their obligations and the relevant agencies are investigating.”

The final data will be confirmed in April
