WRAP reveals £4m plans

Tyre, battery and plasterboard recyclers will be among the main beneficiaries from the Waste and Resources Action Programme's (WRAP) £4 million Landfill Tax windfall.

The market-development body has pledged to support those sectors with the money it has been promised by the Business Resource Efficiency and Waste Programme.

That fund was set up by the Government to dish out the money made by the £3-per-tonne price hike in Landfill Tax from April.

The money is supposed to benefit businesses paying the levy.

A WRAP spokesman said: "As well as developing new markets for tyres, batteries and plasterboard, WRAP will be developing a pilot project for the collection and recycling of waste from small businesses and expanding its current Business Development Scheme."
