Disposable plastic waste plans set out by Welsh Government

Date Published: Friday 11th May 2018

Plans to cut the use of disposable plastic products in Wales have been set out by the Welsh Government.

They include working with other parts of the UK on a deposit return scheme (DRS) for drinks containers and more cash for plastic waste collection.

Drinking water in public places will be increased as Wales wants to be the "world's first 'Refill Nation'."

Plastic action proposals - at a glance:

  • Improve access to drinking points in public places across Wales - from businesses, public buildings to new water fountains
  • £15m to help councils improve plastic recycling
  • Forcing businesses to separate out their recycling
  • Consider a levy or charge on single use coffee cups
