New guide provides clarity on when activities involving reuse of products fall within the scope of waste regulation (and when they do not) and how to comply if they do
SEPA (the Scottish Environmental Protection Agency) has published new guidance for organisations whose activities involve the reuse of certain products.
The new information, which has been developed in line with the Scottish Government Strategy for a Circular Economy and SEPA’s Waste to Resources Framework, is designed for organisations such as local authorities, charity shops, community reuse organisations, remanufacturing companies, repair shops and services, logistics companies which transport used goods, retailers which take back used goods, online reuse organisations, auction houses and pawnbrokers.
According to SEPA, it provides clarity on when activities involving reuse of products fall within the scope of waste regulation (and when they do not), and how to comply if they do.
The guidance has been developed through close working with a wide range of stakeholders, workshops and an online consultation.
