Welsh Government outlines disposable plastic waste plans

The Welsh Government has outlined plans to cut the use of disposable plastic products in Wales.

These plans include a deposit return scheme for drinks containers and an additional £15 million of capital funding for plastic waste collection.

Speaking at the Senedd, Environment Minister Hannah Blythyn will announce her ambitions for Wales to the World's first 'Refill Nation'.

A report commissioned by the Welsh Government found that it would be better for businesses and the public if Wales was part of a UK wide deposit return scheme. And they should continue to consider a tax or levy on single-use cups in Wales
