The legislative regime
Packaging Recovery Notes
Packaging waste obligations
UK packaging regulations require all businesses that have a turnover of more than £2 million per annum and handle more than 50T of packaging a year to register with the relevant environment agency. They must also provide proof that they have met their obligations through the purchase of Packaging Recovery Notes. PRNs are traded much like a commodity or currency. Prices go up as well as down, depending on market forces.
Packaging Recovery Notes (PRNs) are evidence that an accredited re-processor has recycled a volume of material.
Obligated businesses must purchase PRNs relative to the packaging waste activity that they are responsible for.
