The Plastic Packaging Tax will take effect from 1st April 2022 and will apply to plastic packaging manufactured in, or imported into the UK, that does not contain at least 30% recycled plastic. Meaning, it will not apply to any plastic packaging which contains at least 30% recycled plastic.
Plastic packaging with less than 30% recycled content will be taxable at £200/tonne. PCR options are available throughout our entire range, please contact our helpful sales team to discuss your options and requirements further.
The aim of the tax is to provide a clear economic incentive for businesses to use recycled plastic in the manufacture of plastic packaging, which will create greater demand for this material. In turn this will stimulate increased levels of recycling and collection of plastic waste, diverting it away from landfill or incineration.
UK manufacturers of plastic packaging, importers of plastic packaging, business customers of manufacturers and importers of plastic packaging, and consumers who buy plastic packaging or goods in plastic packaging in the UK. If you have a question about the Plastic Packaging Tax, please get in touch and a member of Customised Packaging Limited will be happy to assist you.
