We need an alternative to PRNs


Change is needed but the priority maybe to change the targets. At present too little of the value of PRNs gets through to local authorities who incur most of the cost of collection. Changing the form of the targets to distinguish between material collected from domestic and commercial premises would produce revenue to help develop collections in those sectors and reduce the impact of back of store industrially sourced material - which is going to be recycled anyway.
