Resources and waste strategy for England

The UK government has set out a waste and resources strategy for England, aiming to eliminate all avoidable waste by 2050 and promote a circular economy. Proposed measures include taxing plastic that contains less than 30% recycled material and providing food waste collection to all householders and relevant businesses.

FCRN readers may be particularly interested in chapter 5, which discusses how food waste and surplus can be reduced or redistributed.
