UK Plastics Tax May Reduce Single-Use Plastic, But Efforts Must Be Coordinated

May 18, 2018: 12:00 AM EST

Introducing charges or taxes on plastics might reduce single-plastic usage in the United Kingdom. However, in response to a HM Treasury consultation on the proposals, the Association of Convenience Stores (ACS) wants to ensure that any initiatives avoid duplicating policies and the costs associated for both businesses and consumers. In particular, the ACS has asked HM Treasury to consider the interaction with the current Packaging Recovery Notes System and the work being undertaken to reform it.
