From 6 April 2024, all workplaces must separate their waste for recycling.

The Welsh Government is introducing new regulations that will require all workplaces to separate recyclable materials in the same way that most householders do now. This will improve the quality and quantity of how we collect and separate waste.

The legal requirements to separate their waste will affect:

  1. all workplaces (businesses, the public and third sector)
  2. those who collect the waste, or arrange for waste to be collected
  3. those who collect, receive, keep, treat, or transport waste who will need to keep the waste separate from other types of waste or substances

Further information on how you can prepare and why these changes are being introduced is available on the link below.
