Novelis Recycling national manager Andy Doran suggested that initial feedback from the scheme has been positive.
A principal aim of it is to provide a forum for dialogue while looking at recycling routes which maintain quality and value while minimising carbon impact.
Doran said: Following last weeks launch of the CRR, we welcome the reaction of interested parties and especially those of the Local Authority Recycling Advisory Committee (LARAC) on behalf of local government.
Doran stated that LARAC and the campaign had agreed to take forward discussion on issues and to create a constructive debate that will help apply pressure where it is needed in the industry, and provide local authorities with guidance to help inform their actions.
In particular, we welcome LARACs recognition that in most instances it is advantageous to keep material waste streams separate if possible. Of course there is no one size fits all solution to the collection, transport, storage and/or processing of recyclable materials in the UK.
Nonetheless we are aware of concerns in all sectors of the waste community, including some local authorities, that the best schemes (environmentally, economically or socially) are not always being implemented, he added.
