Final countdown: UK Plastic Packaging Tax - the what, who, how, when
The UK Government's introduction of the plastic packaging tax commences on 1st April 2022.
Its aim is to encourage greater use of recycled plastic and help tackle plastic waste.
- The tax will apply to plastic packaging manufactured in or imported into the UK containing less than 30% recycled content. The tax will be charged at a rate of £200 per tonne.
- Businesses will need to register for Plastic Packaging Tax if they have manufactured or imported 10 or more tonnes of finished plastic packaging components (where the packaging is subject to the tax) within the last 12 months, or will do so in the next 30 days.
